(mylbsonline/Liberia)-Liberians have been cautioned to respect and uphold the dignity of the Flag.

The Director General of the Gabriel L. Dennis Foreign Service Institute in Monrovia, Dr, Augustine Conneh, said: “The Flag symbolizes Liberia’s sovereignty value as a great nation.”

“Liberians must exhibit discipline in their daily activities for the development of their country and do away with any form of indiscipline capable of plunging the nation into trouble.” He noted.

Dr. Conneh spoke Saturday, August 24, 2013 when he served as Keynote Speaker at programs marking the 166th commemoration of National Flag Day at the Centennial Pavilion in Monrovia.

He added: “Liberians must reconcile and resolve their differences and work together to rebuild their country.”

The Gabriel L. Dennis Foreign Service Institute Director General also said : "It was time for Liberians, especially the youth, to work harder and prepare themselves for the leadership and reconstruction of Liberia."

In brief remarks, President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, called on all Liberians, particularly young people, to celebrate the Flag with dignity and a renewed sense of responsibility.

The Liberian Leader then presented a special prize of US$400.00 to the first winner, and US$ 200.00 each to the second and third winners, respectively.

As part of activities marking the observance of National Flag Day, twenty-seven schools in Monrovia and its environs, paraded  through the principal streets, preceded by an in-door program at the Centennial Pavilion.

William V.S. Tubman High School took the first prize, while Cathedral High School and the College of West Africa (C.W.A.) took the second and third prizes respectively.
