The country remained a colony until achieving Independence on November 30 1966, which was celebrated with the revealing of the Barbados National Flag and the singing of the National Anthem. This day was deemed a National Holiday and is filled with various festivities, which celebrate the culture, history and cuisine of Barbados.

The Independence festival runs through the entire month of November beginning with the decorative lighting ceremony of its capitol Bridgetown where blue and yellow bulbs are used creating a specular view at night.
