Belize’s Flag Raising Ceremony 2018
History was made once again as the Belize City Council hosted the 2018 Flag Raising Ceremony to ring in the September Celebrations. The event commenced with the playing of the National Anthem which was followed by the hoisting of our national flag by the Mayor with the assistance of members of the Scout Association of Belize. Then there was an invocation by Reverend Ilona Smiling. Thereafter, Councillor & Chairperson of Citco’s September Celebration Events Allan Pollard Jr. gave his welcome address followed by the Mayor’s very spirited speech addressing the need for unity and patriotism amongst our people. This concluded the ceremony.
