"Independence was and is a state of mind, an attitude, a conviction that we will faithfully fulfill the important responsibilities of sovereignty and self-determination," the premier said in his address to the nation from Clifford Park.
Davis emphasized the raising of the Bahamian flag and stated that “it will be an echo of that moment, 50 years ago, on July 10, 1973, which marked the birth of our nation. It was and is a moment of awe, one that has delivered a birthright that the world now recognizes through our dignified conduct."

According to the prime minister, the act of raising the flag meant raising the "hopes and aspirations of the Bahamian people, to forge our own identity, to open our own path, to seek to build the best small country in the world."
Given the importance of the independence of the Bahamas, Davis called it "the first big step in the long journey that continues to carry our nation forward and upward."
In this sense, he remembered personalities such as former Prime Minister Lynden Oscar Pindling, as well as other exceptional people who helped lay the foundations of the Bahamas, whose legacies he highlighted.
"Each of us is called to unite our steps on the path to our Promised Land: a land where we can stay safe and secure; a land where we can rise from poverty and educate ourselves to greatness; a land where opportunity and justice are free and fair and available to all!" he said.
The celebration brought together various personalities from international politics, such as the President of Rwanda, Paul Kagame, the Prime Minister of Grenada, Dickon Mitchell, the Secretary General of the Commonwealth, Patricia Scotland, among others.
