How is independence celebrated in Jamaica?
Fifty One years ago at midnight on August 5 1962 the union jack was lowered and the flag of Jamaica was unflured for the first time.
The birth of and 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 achievments. Independence Day is a day of grand celebrations in Jamaica: frompaying homeage to the fallen heroes who fought for the independence to indulging in music, dance and parades with people attired in ethnic custumes, Jamaicans hold many laudatory events.
