Republic Bank Joins in Celebrating 53 years of Barbados’ Nationhood


In celebration of Barbados’ 53rd Anniversary of Independence, Republic Bank joined other businesses across its capital Bridgetown, and lit its two buildings, its flagship Branch at Broad Street and its Headquarters in Independence Square in two of our national colours Ultra Marine and Gold.

This has become an annual tradition dating back more than a decade in celebration of our Nation’s Independence. During an official lighting ceremony to signal the start of Independence celebrations every year on November 1st, the lights were switched on at 6:00 p.m. illuminating Bridgetown and its environs with rays of Gold and Ultra Marine. The lights are then turned on nightly thereafter during the month of November.

After the official ceremony which was attended by dignitaries from Government, Executive members of Corporate Barbados and two Parish Ambassadors from all eleven parishes Barbadians and visitors alike were treated to a free concert which encompassed a cultural extravaganza of dance, poetry, instrumental music and song.
