“Freedom For Laos!”

Laos 017Saturday morning marked the 9th observance of Lao Heritage and Freedom Flag Day in the City of Lowell.

In 2004 the City Council, at the request of members of the Lao community, adopted the red flag adorned with a three-headed elephant as the official Lao flag recognized by the city. It was the flag flown by the Kingdom of Laos from 1952 until the royal government fell to Communism in 1975.
