National Heroes’ Day 2017


Every October the third Monday in the month is set aside as a day for the country to honour our seven national heroes.

The Order of National Hero is the highest of the five Jamaican Orders of the Societies of Honour, part of the national honour system that has been in place since 1969. National Hero status is given only to Jamaican citizens for “services of the most distinguished nature” to the nation.

National Heroes’ Day is a time to commemorate the strength, determination and sacrifice of our heroes: Paul Bogle, Sir Alexander Bustamante, Marcus Garvey, George William Gordon, Normal Manley, Nanny of the Maroon and Samuel Sharpe.

These brave individuals fought against the brutal system of slavery, colonial oppression, fought for the right to vote for all and for a free and independent Jamaica.
