OUT OF MANY, ONE PEOPLE

At midnight on August 5, 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 manifold achievements, pays homage to its many heroes and freedom fighters, and celebrates the indomitable Jamaican spirit.
