National Heritage Week, which was held under the theme ‘Celebrating a Heritage of Resilience and Pride’, culminated with the annual wreath-laying salute to our national heroes and the presentation of the national honours and awards. The presentation of the national honours and awards departed from the traditional custom of the governor general physically conferring the awards. Instead, a specially produced virtual event was aired on National Heroes Day, October 19, and was available for viewing on national television and across various social media platforms. The wreath-laying salute to our national heroes was carried live on Television Jamaica, the Public Broadcasting Corporation of Jamaica, and on various social media platforms.
