WE REMEMBER: The first flag raising ceremony at Mulinu’u where the late Malietoa Tanumafili II and the late Tamasese Meaole hoisted Samoa’s flag of freedom in 1962.

In the background is the late Mata'afa Fiame Faumuina Mulinuu II.

The 54th Independence celebration was officially opened last night during a Church service at Matafele and it continues today and tomorrow.
