By BBN Staff: The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, despite the pending court case which may or may not postpone the April 10 Referendum, is hosting an International Court of Justice (ICJ) educational forum in Flowers Bank today, dedicating the event in honor of the heroic Flowers Bank 14.

The forum, which will be led by members of the Referendum Unit, will be held at the Flowers Bank Community Center at 3 p.m. and will also feature a presentation from Godwin Hulse, Minister of Agriculture, Forestry, Fisheries, the Environment, Sustainable Development and Immigration. Area Representative Edmond Castro is also scheduled to
attend.

The Flowers Bank 14 is the name given to a group of men who traveled to what is now Belize City by canoe on June 1, 1797, to vote at a public meeting which was held to decide whether or not to leave the settlement in the face of an attack by Spanish forces. These men voted to stand and fight, a historic decision which paved the way for the
country of Belize to come into existence.

There is a monument erected in Flowers Bank village in honor of the 14. For more than 10 years, the community has an annual cultural festival where, among other things, the Flowers Bank 14 are honored by the laying of wreaths at the monument.
