Preserve our national flag

As one who was privileged to witness the emergence of Jamaica's national flag, it hurts me to see the distortion of its colours to the extent that most of our people, especially young people, do not know the correct hues. To most, the colours are green, black and yellow, with no specific shades.

What's particularly shameful is that Jamaica is the only country in the world I know that does not know and preserve the integrity of its national flag and colours.

I am urging the Ministry of Youth and Culture to take steps to restore and preserve the integrity of our national flag and colours.
