Patriot shows his colours

JAMES WILSON is a man who loves his country.

And he is disappointed every home and building is not bedecked in the island’s national colours.

As Barbados prepares to herald its 50th anniversary of Independence, the chief executive officer at Downes & Wilson Funeral Home has decorated his Eagle Hall, St Michael building with ultramarine and gold valances and other accoutrements, along with the Broken Trident. It’s part of the business’ 246anthem promotion. The lines in the parking line are bright yellow. Even the base of the flag pole has been given a yellow splash.

Wilson told the DAILY NATION yesterday that Barbadians should not just be talking about Independence, but physically showing their national pride.

“As a matter of fact, I was hoping that Barbados would be decorated from January 1, 2016. That was what I was hoping for – to see all of Barbados decorated from the airport to the sea port from the beginning of the year, as well as selling mugs and things for our anniversary – memorabilia,” he said.
