Celebrating its golden jubilee of independence, Grenada proudly rallies around the theme “One People, One Journey, One Future.” This phrase captures the essence of a nation that has grown stronger through a half-century of challenges and victories. “One People” emphasizes the unity in diversity that characterizes the island, a melting pot of cultures and traditions unified by common goals. “One Journey” pays homage to the shared experiences, both difficult and uplifting, that have molded the country’s collective identity. “One Future” underscores a forward-looking optimism, acknowledging that each individual has a role in sculpting a future that is both prosperous and equitable. This unifying theme serves as a resonant affirmation that Grenada’s power lies in its unity, as it continues to forge a unified destiny.
The 50th Anniversary logo embodies our theme “One People, One Future, One Journey. It features a traditional Belair Dancer, an embodiment of our rich heritage and a tribute to the trailblazers who paved our path. Beside her, a young boy stands as a symbol of a promising future and the continuity of our legacy. Their hands, outstretched towards each other, symbolizing unity, emphasizing the strength in collaboration and shared responsibility. Above them, a dove soars, not only signifying a hopeful future but also indicating progress and upward movement. At the base of these are outlines of our mountainous terrain and iconic Grand Etang Lake which symbolizes our cherished island and the collective journey of its inhabitants.
Grenada 50 – Up From Here” is a captivating theme song composed by talented writers Akino ‘Tallis’ Romain, Ryan ‘Riggy Atmosphere’ DeRiggs, and Ahkim ‘Sway Jean’ Baptiste. With production expertise from John James of Xpert Productions and Afibah ‘Phantom’ McQueen, this song embodies the spirit of Grenada’s progress and resilience, capturing the essence of our nation’s journey towards a brighter future.
