I would like to take this opportunity to extend my best wish to members of the Canadian Guyanese community on the occasion of Guyanese Republic Day.
Republic Day is celebrated on February 23rd marking that day in 1970 when the Burnham government proclaimed Guyana, The Co-operative Republic of Guyana. The proclamation also severed Guyana’s last significant constitutional tie to Britain. However, to this day, Guyana remains a member of the Commonwealth of Nations.

Pictures from the Flag Raising at L’Amoreaux Community Center
On February 15, 1965, Canada’s red and white maple leaf flag flew for the very first time. Governor General Georges Vanier, Prime Minister Lester B. Pearson and thousands of Canadians watched on Parliament Hill as the Canadian Red Ensign, bearing the Union Jack and the Shield of the Royal Arms of Canada was lowered and then, on the stroke of 12 o’clock noon, Canada’s new flag was raised.
