My Big Fat Gypsy Nightmare

Romani and Traveler communities are outraged at the latest show called MY BIG FAT GYPSY WEDDING. 

It was billed as an exclusive insight into a “secretive world.” But whilst millions may be tuning into to watch each episode of Big Fat Gypsy Weddings, many of those are reacting with fury to way Gypsies and Traveller are being shown. (read article from Traveler Times)

Please help support us by filing a complaint and be sure to speak out on the many forums and conversations happening about this show.

THE OFFICIAL ROMANI FLAG

romani gypsy flag

There are many people in this world, including the Romani who are not aware that we have an official flag. It was adopted adopted at the First World Romani Congress in London in 1971. The Romani chakra wheel at the center is actually a link to the Roma's Indian origins (the 24-spoked Ashok Chakra is in the center of the national flag of India, the *Tiranga*) and represents movement and the original Creation but the wheel on our flag is the 16 spoke wheel which in India represented the 16 spokes of Gandhi's economic liberation and independence movement. The blue and green are the traditional colors with the red wheel in the center. Blue is the blue sky represents the heavens. Green is the land, organic and growing. The blue symbolizes eternal spiritual values; the green earthly values. The wheel in the center for us, symbolizes movement and progress and it is red is to honor the blood of those of us who have fallen.The flag was carried to the United Nations in New York in 1978. Yul Brynner, Professor Ian Hancock, Ronald Lee and John Tene were in attendance and were active in the International Romani Union. That particular flag was made by my daughter Dianna for the event.

Ronald Lee says " The reason why the American Roma know almost nothing about the flag is because it was created in Europe by Roma and Sinti and was voted as our official flag by Romani representatives in Britain, France, Spain, West Germany, the Netherlands, and other non-communist countries of western Europe in the 1960s. It was at the 1971 conference that Romani leaders in Europe decided to create the Petition to the UN requesting some kind of status in the UN for Roma. This was granted in 1979 after we carried the flag and the petition to New York in 1978. Since the collapse of communism. The flag is used by Romani organizations in central-eastern Europe and now in Australia."
