Guyana Flag Again Flies Over Wall Street


News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Fri. June 8, 2012: Guyana’s flag, the ‘Golden Arrowhead,’ was again hoisted over Wall Street this week to mark the country’s 46th year of independence.

The flag was raised for the fourth consecutive year. News Americas founder Felicia Persaud, arranged for the Guyana flag to be raised for the first time over Manhattan in 2007 to mark the South American nation’s 41st anniversary of independence from Britain. The tradition has continued ever since.

The 2007 launch event had featured a cultural street ceremony with Guyanese artists and a reception at The Alexander Hamilton Customs Building in lower Manhattan that honored Hollywood actor Sean Patrick Thomas, known for his role in ‘Save The Last Dance.’
