Parque Las Banderas (Flags Park) finally opens in Sosua
After over a year of work and traffic disruptions, this delightful little park was officially opened last Sunday by the Mayor of Sosua, Vladimir Céspedes. It is located opposite Banco Popular on Calle Alejo Martinez, just a few minutes' walk from the West Indies Sosua Head Office.
Flags of Israel, Germany, UK, Russia, Spain, Canada, Switzerland, Italy, France, Ecuador and Dominican Republic were all hoisted, with the respective anthems of each country being played. The Park is intended to celebrate the diverse population of Sosua and reflects the national pride of foreigners and Dominicans alike.
