2016 Papua New Guinea Independence Day celebrations

Independence Day fever building up in Port Moresby

Black, red and gold merchandise can be found at every turn of the corner, coupled with the flags of the 22 provinces in various sizes.

A good number of young boys are seen walking around, some standing at traffic lights along the Waigani drive, bus stops and main market areas, giving commuters the opportunity to get a flag for K2 or K5.

Spotted along the Waigani traffic lights outside Vision City was 17-year-old Joe (just Joe) from Six-Mile.
