Guests in the main stand at the National Stadium rise at midnight in salute to the Jamaican national flag as it is raised to the top of the flagstaff during the ceremonies making Jamaica’s Independence. In the background are Princess Margaret and the Earl of Snowdon standing in the Royal Box, the princess with eyes raised to the flag.

As Jamaica prepares to celebrate 57 years of Independence from Britain tomorrow, The Gleaner takes you down memory lane on a journey through our archives.
