On Lebanese Flag Day: AUB pledges loyalty to Lebanon and commitment to democracy, tolerance, dialogue, and diversity

One day before Lebanon’s independence day, the AUB community gathered in front of West Hall in an annual ceremony to raise the Lebanese flag in honor of Lebanese Flag Day.

Interim Provost Mohamed Harajli, Dean of Student Affairs Talal Nezameddin, upper administration, faculty, staff, and students participated in the ceremony which started with the Lebanese National Anthem and concluded with a folkloric dabke performance by students from the AUB Dabke Club.

In his speech before the raising of the Lebanese flag, Dr. Talal Nezameddin spoke of AUB’s pledge of loyalty to Lebanon over the years and some of the progress made within AUB and Lebanon in the name of democracy, tolerance, dialogue, peaceful political competition, and diversity.

“Lebanon enjoys freedom and the Lebanese people understand the power of dialogue and tolerance: Something that is much in demand today in the East and the West,” said Nezameddin. “The history of  Lebanon and AUB is marked by resilience and uniqueness.”

“There is no alternative to the Lebanon that proudly defies all those who doubt it can prevail. Here today, under this beautiful flag, we pledge our commitment to protect the fine reputation of AUB and also keep this country safe from harm wherever we are in the world,” he added.
