The Government of Liberia through the Governance Commission has appointed the European Federation of Liberia Associations (EFLA) to the National Symbols Review Project.

A letter to the president of EFLA John Nimly Brownell stated that EFLA has been selected to appoint a representative that will serve as a member of the project’s advisory board.

“We hope you will accept to collaborate with your fellow Liberians in this important national endeavor,” noted April 14, 2014 letter signed by Dr. Amos Sawyer, Chairman of the Governance Commission.

The project was established to coordinate informed consultative process that will draw upon Liberia’s energy and creativity to promote a national conversation on the official symbols of the Republic of Liberia.

It will solicit input from Liberians across ethnic, regional, religious, generational, gender and educational divides. This broad-based inclusive process is expected to yield timeless symbols reflecting Liberia’s past, present, and future.
