National Heroes of the Cayman Islands

In 1993, the Legislative Assembly passed the National Heroes Law, providing for the declaration of persons who have rendered exceptional service as national heroes. The first national hero, the late Executive Council member Hon. James (Jim) Manoah Bodden, was named in 1994. In 2003 the country celebrated its Quincentennial and the fourth Monday in January became a new public holiday, National Heroes Day.
