By Srimal Fernando, Global Editor The Diplomatic Society

The Maldives celebrated its 50th Anniversary of Independence on 26th July 2015.

The celebrations of the island's golden jubilee of independence began on Friday night with an hour-long fireworks display at the capital Male's Republic Square. The function was witnessed by thousands, including President Abdulla Yameen, first lady Fathimath Ibrahim, and former presidents Maumoon Abdul Gayoom and Mohamed Waheed Hassa.

 

Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena participated in the commemoration of the 50th Anniversary of Independence of the Republic of Maldives as a Special Guest.

British Queen Elizabeth II said: "It gives me great pleasure to send my warmest greetings to the people of Maldives on the celebration of the 50th Anniversary of Independence together with my best wishes for happiness and prosperity in the coming years."

The Maldives which was governed by Portuguese, Dutch and British colonialists had been ruled by a Sultan when it received the freedom from British colonialists in 1965.
