Did you know...
... that today is Trinidad and Tobago Independence Day? The
Republic of Trinidad and Tobago became independent of Great
Britain on August 31, 1962. At midnight on August 30, 1962,
the Union Jack (British flag) was lowered and the Trinidad and
Tobago flag was raised for the first time. Bells tolled and sirens rang out to herald the birth of the newly independent nation!
