Flag Rising Ceremony

The Argentine Lawyers Association was present at the flag rising ceremony, on 24 May 2023, at the historic Bowling Green, celebrating 200 years of bilateral relations between Argentina and the US. The ceremony was presided by the Argentine Ambassador in the US, Mr Jorge Argüello; with the participation of the Consul General, Mr Santiago Villalba; Ambassador María del Carmen Squeff (Permanent Representative of Argentina to the United Nations); the New York Mayor, Mr. Eric Adams; and several officers of the City of New York. Mayor Adams issued a proclamation, declaring Wednesday 24 May 2023 as the “Argentina Heritage Day”. The event was followed by further celebration, on 25 May, at the Argentine Consulate, on occasion of the 213th anniversary of the “May Revolution”. We thank Mr Santiago Villalba (Consul General) and Mr Nelson Martin (Adjunct Consul General) for the invitation.
