Only in Kenya

United as One

There are very few things that unite us as Kenyans: our flag is one, Tusker, Equity Bank and Kenya Airways are the others.

The sight our flag’s livery on the tail of a Boeing parked on an airport’s apron in Europe, Asia or other African country sends a sense of national pride down and through every nerve of a true Kenyan’s body, and is affirmed with a wide smile. Our flag’s colours unite us in a unique way.

Your party, religion or tribe become irrelevant in times like this as we stand united under the black, red, green and white stripes of our flag. United in grief with the families of all occupants, including nine fellow brothers and sisters of KQ 507.

Weeping but endures for a night.

As the huge African sun rises tomorrow, it will be our joy to see a silhouette of a KQ plane rising in the horizon.

The Pride of Africa will rise like a phoenix and soar once again.
