Bay Islanders commemorate 200 years of independence of Honduras

The Bay Islands authorities came together from early in the morning to celebrate the 200 years of independence of Honduras with solemnity and patriotic fervor.

The allusive acts began at 5:50 AM with a prayer to the Divine Creator by Father Norberto Marroquín, then the National Flag was raised, an act carried out by the Naval Base followed by the intonation of the National Anthem.

During the act, the traditional coronation of Francisco Morazán's bust was also made by representatives of the Roatán Lions Club, followed by allusive words from Dino Silvestri, Governor of the Bay Islands, and the representatives of the Roatán Mayor's Office.

The ceremony in the central park of Coxen Hole closed with reactions from the departmental director of education, Delvin Merino, and free space for more words of commemoration of the solemn act by those present.

To end the celebration of the national Bicentennial, a march was held by the departmental authorities, together with the relief corps and the armed forces present.
