The 16th of February is a special day in Lithuania! The Act of Reinstating Independence of Lithuania was signed by the Council of Lithuania on February 16, 1918, proclaiming the restoration of an independent State of Lithuania, governed by democratic principles, with Vilnius as it's capital. 
And the handsome man shouting "Freedom!" is Jonas Basanavičius, who was an activist and proponent of Lithuanian National Revival among other things.
I think this could become a really nice T-shirt!
