Upwards and Onwards: The Barbadian Pledge

13th November, 2014

Seeing that November is our Independence month here in Barbados, we thought we would share a bit of our heritage! Today we are focusing on our National Pledge. Sometimes we forget about our emblems and now is the perfect time to remember and cherish them. Mr Lester Vaughn wrote the Barbados National pledge, here it is:

I pledge allegiance to my country Barbados and to my flag,
To uphold and defend their honour,
And by my living, to do credit to my nation,
Wherever I go.

Remember Wherever you go, Barbados will be your home. Very lucky aren't we?

Melanie & Kimberly*

We would love to hear what you think.
