Republic Bank Still Lighting Branches For Independence


Republic Bank is keeping the Independence lighting tradition alive.

“Despite there being no official lighting ceremony due to COVID-19 this year, we at Republic still felt the need to express our patriotism. We also believe that staying true to these kinds of traditions and celebrations helps us all to regain a sense of normalcy; it injects brightness and joy into what has been an unprecedented and challenging year,” said the Bank’s Manager, Marketing and Corporate Communications Sophia Allsopp Cambridge.

The Speightstown, Limegrove, Warrens, Broad Street, Wildey, Worthing and Six Roads branches and Independence Square Head Office, are all now bathed in ultramarine and gold at night. The special lighting will continue throughout the month of November as is customary.

Ms. Allsopp Cambridge explained, “By honouring this tradition of lighting our buildings with the national colours, we are saying that we will uphold the traditions that our people hold dear. May these lights be a reminder that we are a Bank of the people, operating for the good of the people. The management and staff take this opportunity to wish all Barbadians a happy Independence.”
