St. Kitts and Nevis (WINN): The government of St. Kitts and Nevis has announced the theme for its 41st Independence Anniversary: “Together, a People, Proud and Strong: Independence 41.”

The theme, created by Vincia Alexander of Lime Kiln Project Extension, St. Kitts, was chosen from over 200 entries in this year’s Independence Theme Competition.

Prime Minister Hon. Dr. Terrance Drew revealed the theme during the July 5, 2024, Sitting of the National Assembly.

“This year’s theme, ‘Together, a People, Proud and Strong: Independence 41,’ reflects the essence of our national identity. It is a call to celebrate our collective achievements and to continue building a future filled with hope and unity,” said Prime Minister Drew.

As September 2024 approaches, the nation is preparing for a month of events to foster unity and pride. The theme highlights the importance of togetherness and the pride derived from shared achievements.

The Independence 41 Organising Committee, chaired by Dr Marcus L. Natta, Cabinet Secretary, and Ms Viera Galloway, Director in the Prime Minister’s Office, is planning a series of events.

Dr Natta said the theme, ‘Together, a People, Proud and Strong: Independence 41,’ encapsulates our nation’s journey and reminds us of our resilience and harmony.

Galloway highlighted the significant response to the theme competition, with numerous creative submissions. She said Vincia Alexander’s entry stood out for its simplicity and profound message and is excited to see how the theme will inspire celebrations and unite people.

Independence 41 will feature cultural showcases, community events, educational programmes, and national ceremonies.

As September 2024 approaches, more announcements and event details will follow.
