St. Kitts & Nevis celebrate 37 Years of Independence

|

St. Kitts and Nevis today Saturday 19 September, celebrates 37 years of independence from the United Kingdom. 

The country, as the Federation of St Christopher and Nevis, had internal self-government from 1976, and achieved independence on 19 September 1983, choosing to remain a constitutional monarchy with Queen Elizabeth II as head of state.

The theme for this year’s celebrations is Resilience, Innovation and Security for Independence 2020.

Due to COVID-19, many of the usual flagship events have been cancelled while other significant activities have been scaled back. However, there will be a series of events that will take place virtually to commemorate the celebrations that will run into October.

Happy Independence to all Kittians & Nevisians worldwide!
