The NY-Panama team wishes all our Panamanian friends and associates Happy Independence Day! We share with you your Panamanian Pride and success.
Below is an interesting fact about Panama’s independence from Colombia from the Official website of Panama www.visitpanama.com
On November 3, 1903, independence was proclaimed in Panama City, a decision that was immediately backed in the rest of the country, and the Panamanian society declared this territory a sovereign independent state under the name of the Republic of Panama.
The historical document that stated this proclamation, the Declaration of Independence of the Isthmus, was written that historic morning of the third by the very leader of the revolution, José Agustín Arango, to an eminent Panamanian jurist who was a prominent figure in the country's Liberal Party and political life, Dr. Carlos Antonio Mendoza.
