October 1, 1960. The Nigeria High Commission

Marking the first day of Nigerian independence. The new green and white flag flying at Nigeria House, Northumberland Avenue, London.

Seen here in the crowd are members of the Nigerian community, dignitaries and Nigerian servicemen on parade.

The night before (September 30th) an awesome celebration took place at the Royal Festival Hall.

There was cheering and dancing at the stroke of midnight when the country officially became independent.
