Annapolis to Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month Beginning Today

| September 15, 2021, 02:44 PM

In celebration of Hispanic/Latino Heritage Month, the City of Annapolis will be raising the flags of Latin American and Spanish-descended countries along Main Street for the second consecutive year. The initiative motivates many Latino families living in and around Annapolis to spend time in Historic Downtown to walk among the flags and take a photo next to the flag of their country of origin.

Hispanic Heritage Month begins on September 15, in celebration of the anniversary of independence for five Latin American countries: El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Costa Rica. Other countries also celebrate their independence during Hispanic Heritage Month, which ends on Oct. 15.

The Arc of Central Maryland

“Raising the flags of our Latin American and Hispanic countries celebrates and recognizes the presence of our Latino neighbors and their roots. It is important for us to respect and feel proud of our many cultures, traditions, and diverse backgrounds. Celebrating Hispanic Heritage is just one way in which we show our appreciation of immigrant influence and presence in our City” said Mayor Gavin Buckley.

The City will also partner with the Anne Arundel County Office of Constituent Services to host a “Marketing and Promotion” themed breakfast for Latino Business owners at 8:30 a.m. Thursday, September 23 at Sin Fronteras Cafe, 2129 Forest Drive, Annapolis.
