Canada’s Niagara Falls were illuminated with Egyptian flag colours in celebration of Egypt’s 23 July revolution
Canada’s Niagara Falls were illuminated with Egyptian flag colours for the second consecutive year on Friday night to celebrate Egypt’s 23 July revolution, a statement by the Egyptian foreign ministry said.
In 2021, Egypt celebrates the 69th anniversary of the 1952 revolution which secured the country's independence from British occupation and instituted wide social and economic reforms.
Many members of the Egyptian community in Canada participated in the event as the embassy has invited them to witness such unique moment with family and friends, the ministry said.
The Egyptian embassy in Canada, chaired by Ambassador Ahmed Abu Zaid, organized throughout the month of July various actual and virtual events to commemorate the event and also the Egyptian Heritage Month, which is celebrated in July yearly in Canada.
