Ukrainians Living in the U.S. & Florida

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, in 2019, it was estimated that approximately 1.1 -million people of Ukrainian decent resided in the United States.

In Florida, some sources speculate the heaviest concentrations of Ukrainian-Americans and new immigrants are found in Broward, Dade and Palm Beach counties, especially in the Aventura and Sunny Isles communities.

There are clusters of Ukrainians living in many parts of central, northern and southwest Florida and the Tampa Bay area. The exact number of people from Ukraine living in Florida is unknown.

Ukrainian Flag

The flag of Ukraine is a simple bi-colored light blue and yellow banner, that was officially adopted on January 28, 1992.

The flag is a symbol of the land, the Sovereignty of the country, and the hope of the nation. Hence, it is celebrated every August 23rd as a reminder of the resilience of Ukrainians in the struggle for independence.

Blue is symbolic of the calming skies above. Yellow is the color of its vast wheat fields and the feeling of joy.

Lighting System Creator

The lighting system was designed and engineered by LED Smith, Inc. of West Palm Beach, Fla.

The company’s CEO, Gavin Cooper, has created lighting systems for some of the world’s best-known landmarks, including the Empire State Building.
