An installation was set up in front of Britain's Houses of Parliament in Westminster, Central London earlier today, with thousands of Karthgaipoo flowers bearing messages of remembrance to mark Maaveerar Naal.
More than 4,000 flowers with commemorative messages were laid out amongst a large installation of the words ‘WE REMEMBER’. In the run up to the launch of the installation, messages were gathered from British Tamils across the UK.
Minister for London and Small Businesses Paul Scully was amongst those in Westminster today who signed a tribute and laid a Karthigaipoo at the installation.
Labour MP Stephen Timms also visited the installation and paid tribute.
Part of the installation was later moved to a site overlooking the iconic Tower Bridge on the Thames riverside.
