The Latvian flag will fly on the mast at Guernsey's Castle Cornet today to celebrate the nation's Independence Day.

The castle will also be lit in the country's colours as events take place across the globe.

Latvia proclaimed independence from Russia on 18th November in 1918 after the end of the First World War.

Today marks 100 years of independence and Latvians in Guernsey will be coming together to celebrate the centenary.
