Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama makes his way to officially open the Fiji Fuel Retailers Association 2015 conference and AGM at the Grand Pacific Hotel in Suva yesterday.
Mr Bainimarama said the national flag feedback teams which had been fanning out all over the country reported a very positive response from ordinary Fijians to the idea of embracing a flag that spoke as Fijians today and the colonial past.
“In the meantime, I appeal to every Fijian ? no matter what their age and background ? to join us in this quest for a new “noble banner blue” that will fly proudly in the years to come and genuinely represent the spirit of the Fijian nation,” he said.
“While we are slightly delaying the process of choosing a new flag, development plans are another matter. Because those plans have been put off for too long and the process cannot wait.”
