Tribute to Belizean Flag
Tribute to the Belizean Flag:
“As we unfurl your colours true,
The white, the scarlet and royal blue,
We pledge allegiance and with pride
Salute you, on your heavenward ride.
We pledge to make you always fly
In this our bit of land and sky.
May the unity for which you stand,
Infuse each heart, and join each hand
Making us one against all foes
As under God, our nation grows.
And so we say
Always our standard be.”
Poem written in 1981 (the year Belize gained it’s independence) by Corinth Morter Lewis.
