Sinn Féin Councillor Sandra Duffy said
“The Easter Lily is an emblem of unity between the different traditions within the nation as well as the heroism of those who sacrificed so much in 1916. The lily has always had strong symbolic value, though its meaning and symbolism have changed through the ages. Today in 2015 it symbolises the possibility of unity, equality and prosperity for all the peoples of the island.The Easter Lily was designed in 1925 by Cumann na mBan.
The annual distribution of the lilies will take place in the lead up to Easter weekend .A limited numbers of metal pin badges are also available at our Ráth Mór office on the New Road,Shantallow/Culmore office and Peadar O Donnell’s Waterloo Street.
Easter Sunday is on the 5th April this year further details will be released in the Derry press shortly.
