JAMAICA INDEPENDENCE DAY 2015
THURSDAY 6TH AUGUST 2015
Fifty three years ago at midnight on August 5th, 1962, the Union Jack was lowered and the flag of Jamaica was unfurled for the first time. The birth of an independent Jamaica was, perhaps, the most significant event in the nation's history. Today, Jamaicans celebrate the day to commemorate that historic movement, and to reflect on the struggle undertaken to gain autonomy. It is a day of national pride and commemorates the country's achievements.
Independence Day is a day of grand celebrations in Jamaica and for Jamaican’s all over the world; from paying homage to the fallen heroes who fought for the independence of the country to indulging in entertainment, music, dance, and parades with people attired in ethnic costumes, Jamaicans hold many laudatory events.
