70th Independence Day

Sunday, 4 February 2018

As Sri Lanka readies to celebrate its 70th Independence Day, vendors in the Colombo city lined up on the sidewalks and streets to sell National Flags. Hoisting of the National Flag is considered a mark of patriotism and love for one’s motherland and the government has requested all institutions, homes and vehicles to hoist the flag.
