Sri Lankan Ambassador to Korea Manisha Gunasekera  hosted a gala reception at Seoul Millennium Hilton Hotel  on Feb.7 to celebrate the country's Independence Day, the day  in 1948 that the Ceylon became an independent country from United Kingdom.

   
   
 

Sri Lanka's Independence Day is celebrated on 4th of February to commemorate its internal political independence from British rule on that day in 1948.
The day is a national holiday in Sri Lanka. It is celebrated all over the country through flag-hoisting ceremony, dances, parades and performances. Usually, the main celebration takes place in Colombo, where the President raises the national flag and delivers a nationally televised speech.

   
 

Many national struggles were made in the history of Sri Lanka. And on the independence day all of these are remembered and celebrated.
Sri Lankan envoy  highlighted  the achievements of the government during the past year, raises important issues and gives a call for further development
in his address at the function joined by 300 plus invited guests including  members of foreign diplomatic corps accredited to Korea.
On this day, there are singing and performances that showcase national unity and culture. Religious observances are also made in many palaces of worship

   
 

around the country, wishing for peace and prosperity for the country, people and the tri-forces.
The national media also tries to promote ideas such as bravery, confidence, dedication, national unity, patriotism, nationalism, peace, national responsibility and awareness of national history in the minds of people.
Traditionally the Sri Lanka Navy accords a 25 gun salute to the nation from the ceremonial naval gun battery at the Colombo Lighthouse.
