Return the sea serpent weather vane


The newly renovated and restored Red House is a beauty to behold, and all Trinbagonians should be proud of this iconic building.

Congratulations to the Government for a job well done in restoring the Red House to its prestigious status.

I now call upon the Government to restore the historical resident sea serpent as the weather vane atop the Red House, which was removed on midnight of January 11, 1992, after the PNM was re-elected to govern the country in 1992.

After all, the Red House still stands as the seat of our nation’s Parliament, and a symbol of fortitude and democracy for all the people of Trinidad and Tobago.

It is of interest to note the removed sea serpent was atop the Red House for 85 years until it was unceremoniously removed on the grounds of superstition and obeah beliefs.
