Flag Day is being observed in Dominica today and forms part of the Independence calendar of events.

Dominica’s flag was originally designed by artist and playwright Alwin Bully in 1978.

An island wide motorcade was held earlier today as part of the observation of Flag Day.

A number of schools, public and private citizens on the island took part in the motorcade organized by the Cultural Division and the Reunion Committee.

Chief Cultural Officer Raymond Lawrence said “So far there have been and out pouring of love and participation showcasing the love for Dominica.”

Mr. Lawrence said Dominicans at home and abroad should display their flags throughout the day.
