Ismail Qemali dhe shpallja e pavaresise se Shqiperise
28 Nentor 1912
Ismail Qemali played an important role in the Albanian movement for independence. He was a principal figure in the Albanian Declaration of Independence in 28 November 1912. Together with Isa Boletini, Luigj Gurakuqi, and other delegates from all the country he formed the independent government of Albania. This signaled the end of almost 500 years of Ottoman rule in Albania. He was prime minister of Albania from 1912 to 1914.
On 28 November 1912 Ismail Qemali raised the flag on the balcony of the two-story building in Vlorë where the Declaration of Independence had just been signed.
