Fijian flags have been pinned on every tree at Albert Park and a special Fiji50 garden was unveiled as the capital launched its Independence Day celebration yesterday.

In addition, 50 trees will be planted in Suva and 50 in Lami.

During the launch at My Suva Picnic Park, Suva and Lami special administrator chair Isikeli Tikoduadua said the garden was an opportunity for families to have memorabilia.

A special selfie board will be constructed in a day and the public can take pictures. Mr Tikoduadua said special lights have been installed to give special effects at night.

“We want families and members of the public to have something to remember Fiji50 and be part of it,” he said.

Suva City has embarked on a number of beautification projects for the Fiji50 that will be unveiled in the coming days.

Suva Retailers Association president Vinay Kumar said Suva on Sale starts next week and urged the public to be part of this celebration.

He said there were a number of retailers who had been in operation before 1970.

The Suva City Council vendors will also hold a competition in the buildup to the celebration
