A FLAG raising ceremony was yesterday held at the Jalan Kampong Rimba residence of the Ambassador of Myanmar to Brunei to commemorate the 67th Independence Day of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar.
Ambassador Daw Yin Yin Myint and Embassy of Republic of the Union of Myanmar officials joined Myanmar citizens in celebrating the event, which also included a live telecast of the parade and festivities being held in Myanmar.
Myanmar gained independence from over 100 years of colonisation from the British in January 1948. Today, it is home to about 52 million people from various national groups.
