Jamaica gained its Independence from the British and raised its National Flag for the first time on Independence Day, August 6, 1962, signifying the birth of a new nation. On August 7, Princess Margaret of England opened the island's first session of Parliament on behalf of the Queen, completing the transfer of independence to Jamaica.

Each year, Independence Day is celebrated with gaiety and patriotic fervour and this year is no exception. From Friday gone to Friday coming, the entire island comes alive under the theme 'I Believe in Jamaica' as black, green and gold cover buntings, banners and buildings.

The locals in all their splendid finery sashay through the centre of Kingston during the gala parade and depict different aspects of Jamaican culture. Celebrations begin on Emancipation Day on the 1 August, when traditional Junkanoo dancers recall the days of slavery and celebrate modern day Jamaica in all its exotic glory.

Mysilversands offers the perfect opportunity to its guests to enjoy the festivities and join millions of people all over the world in this symbolic celebration and let them know it is Jamaica’s Independence Day.
