HNB celebrated the 64th Independence Day in conjunction with its Pathum Vimana launch.
The bank deployed four HNB mobile floats with four national flags with line drawings mounted onto the trucks. These vehicles then paraded the streets covering all four corners of the country from where the general public was encouraged to paint these national flags along the way. The fully painted trucks reached Colombo where a ceremonious launch was organised to commemorate the Pathum Vimana launch.
The event was graced by many customers. The Chief Guests were Dr Ranee Jayamaha, Chairperson – HNB and Rajendra Theagarajah, Managing Director/CEO – HNB. The event was made more colourful and attractive with a fresh mounting of a line drawing of the National Flag at the location, which was painted by customers, school children, members of the HNB Corporate Management and HNB staff.
Speaking at the launch, Dr Ranee Jayamaha stated that it was a pleasure and a privilege for her to be a part of the 64th Independence Day celebrations and of the HNB Pathum Vimana launch. Whilst thanking the organisers for initiating such a novel concept of national importance, she went on to say that there was immense enthusiasm and participation from the general public with a great sense of ownership and belonging for the cause.
