Cambodia Marks 66th Independence Day

Have questions or resources regarding Khmer Culture? This forum is all about the Kingdom of Cambodia's culture. Khmer language, Cambodian weddings, French influence, Cambodian architecture, Cambodian politics, Khmer customs, etc? This is the place. Living in Cambodia can cause you to experience a whole new level of culture shock, so feel free to talk about all things related to the Khmer people, and their traditions. And if you want something in Khmer script translated into English, you will probably find what you need.

Cambodian people of all walks of life gathered here at the Independence Monument this morning to celebrate the 66th anniversary of national independence from France (Nov. 9, 1953-Nov. 9, 2019).

The auspicious celebration took place under the royal presidency of His Majesty Preah Bat Samdech Preah Boromneath Norodom Sihamoni, King of Cambodia, with Samdech Vibol Sena Pheakdei Say Chhum, President of the Senate, Samdech Akka Moha Ponhea Chakrei Heng Samrin, President of the National Assembly, and Prime Minister Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo HE in attendance.

Foreign ambassadors accredited to Cambodia were also present at this annual event.

On the occasion, the monarch lighted the “victory flame” at the Independence Monument, which will be kept burning for three days.

The whole ceremony was broadcast live on local television and radio stations. While public areas are decorated with slogans related to the independence of Cambodia, at night, there will be the display of fireworks at the Chaktomuk River.

Yesterday, delegations from different government ministries and institutions took their turn to lay wreaths at the Independence Monument and the Royal Statue of the late King-Father Samdech Preah Norodom Sihanouk (Preah Borom Rattanak Kaudh), located near the Independence Monument.

Independence Day 2020 - 9 November

Cambodia News, Phnom Penh: The celebration of the 67th year of Cambodian Independence from French colonial rule was a more restrained affair than usual, due to fears of spreading the Covid-19 virus. Everyone at the ceremony was wearing a mask, but social distancing was difficult. The King was present, but the Cambodian PM was unable to attend because he is currently self-isolating, following medical advice.

They’ve been taken off for the group photo. You can can see all the others they’re wearing masks.

The first photo with HE in attendance and no masks is from last year, 2019. :hattip:
