Dominican Republic Independence Flag Raising

February 27, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 11:30 am

The flyer is the Dominican Republic Flag along the top half of the page. The lower section of the page is all the information for the flag raising.

The City of Jersey City, Mayor Steven Fulop, the Municipal Council Members and the Office of Cultural Affairs were honored to recognize Juan Pablo Duarte Association and the Dominican-Americans on their 179th Anniversary of Independence of Dominican Republic during the Flag Raising Ceremony on Monday, February 27, 2023.  Anthems of both nations were played.

 The Dominican community has contributed greatly in many areas of our society to the social and economic fabric throughout Jersey City, Hudson County and New Jersey State.  The richness of ethnic traditions and cultural ancestry of the Dominican American community serves as an example to our democratic system of values.

 This momentous occasion is a reflection of camaraderie built between the United States and Dominican Republic and our enduring love for freedom, liberty and democracy that today the world is still inspired by.

The Jersey City Juan Pablo Duarte Association members Alma Santana, Glenis Rodriguez, Naicy Beltre, Felicia Montas, Lilliam Banner, Miguel Guzman, Gretel Sosa, Luz Mayi and Jaime Santana were joined by Mayor Steven M. Fulop, Councilman Yosef Saleh, Taraliz Terc, Gladys Rivera and Jonathan Gomez. Along with Honorees Ingeniero Angel Pichardo Acosta of the First Consul General De New Jersey, Carlos Perez and Reverend Dereck I. Green.
