LEBANESE HERITAGE MONTH: NOVA SCOTIA
On November 8th, 2018 the Government of Nova Scotia proclaimed November as Nova Scotia’s inaugural Lebanese Heritage Month.
This annual celebration is an opportunity to honour and celebrate our vibrant Lebanese community and culture, and educate all citizens about Lebanese Canadians and their continuing role in helping to foster growth, prosperity and innovation throughout Nova Scotia.
100 Years of Lebanon
On September 1, 1920, General Henri Gouraud, a French Military General who served as the representative of French Government in the Middle East, declared the Greater State of Lebanon at the Pine Residence in Beirut. Lebanon was born with its boundaries and Beirut was announced the capital. The official Lebanese flag was the same like the French flag, with a cedar in the middle.
Let me tell you who are the children of my Lebanon:
They are those who migrate with nothing but courage in their hearts and strength in their arms,
but who return with wealth in their hands and
a wreath of glory upon their heads.
- Gibran Khalil Gibran
