Belize celebrates the 224th anniversary of the Battle of St. George’s Caye “Valiant and Bold, Proud and Strong! Belize Rebounds @ 41,” is the selected theme for this year’s September celebrations, and undertones of this theme were resonant at the ceremony marking the 224th anniversary of the Battle of St. George’s Caye, which took place at the Memorial Park in Belize City and was attended by various members of government as well as members of the diplomatic corps. Francis Fonseca, Chairman of the National Celebrations Committee, highlighted Belize’s cultural diversity and noted that we must be able to protect and preserve our history and culture. “Belize’s society is a beautifully intricately woven tapestry of cultural diversity.
