During the celebrations of 35 Years of Independence (35 Jaar Srefidensi) in Suriname on November 23rd 2010, students formed a human flag of Suriname at the Andre Kamperveen Stadium in Paramaribo. The activities in the stadium started around 5 o’ clock in the afternoon. The Independence Day celebrations take place during the rainy season in Suriname. There were rain clouds visible in the sky but fortunately it didn’t rain during the activities. The pictures in the photo gallery below give you an impression of this event.

The Independence Day celebrations in Suriname take place every year on (and sometimes also around) the 25th of November. Suriname achieved independence from the Netherlands on the 25th of November, 1975.
