Thursday, November 27, 2003 – The Standing National Independence
Anniversary Committee (SNIAC), launched the programme of activities to mark the
25th anniversary celebrations of St. Lucia’s independence on Wednesday November
26, 2003, at the Office of the Prime Minister.
The launching featured the presentation of the calendar of main national events
spanning a year, the 25th anniversary of Independence website, the logo and the
jingle. The website was constructed by Webmaster and Network Administrator in
the Prime Minister’s Office, Richmond Felix.
The logo which depicts a combination of men, women and children against the
backdrop of the map of St. Lucia imprinted on the flag was designed by committee
member, Giovanni St. Omer, and Miss Natalie Preville. The jingle featuring the theme
for independence “Taking Responsibility for Our Country’s Development”, was
produced by internationally acclaimed musician Ronald Boo Hinkson.
In presenting the logo, St. Omer said it captured the essence of people coming
together to take St. Lucia into the future, under God’s guidance.
Chairman of the multi-sector independence committee Dr James Fletcher, says
activities will be staged at both community and national levels. He says such
widespread celebrations will allow for a memorable observance with the requisite
pomp, ceremony, dignity and significance, befitting such an occasion.
The official Independence Day website is “www.saintluciasilver.org”
and features information on all aspects of St. Lucian life as well as the
schedule of activities to mark the 25th Anniversary of St. Lucia’s Independence.
