BRITISH Naval officer Tara Tuivaga will cherish a moment in life when she hoisted Team Fiji's flag during the flag raising ceremony at the Glasgow Commonwealth Games Village yesterday.

The ceremony set the platform for an exciting colourful and entertaining opening ceremony on Thursday.

"It was a proud moment for young British Navy Officer, Tara Tuivaga, as she raised Fiji's flag at Team Fiji's flag raising ceremony at the Glasgow Commonwealth Games Village," a statement from FASANOC said.

"The Fijian lass is based in Portsmouth, England and was brought up to Glasgow to be part of the ceremonies."

Team Fiji, PNG and the Falkland Islands shared the morning's flag raising ceremonies. Performed by a group of young Glasgow performers, the flag raising ceremony has set the pace for an exciting, colourful and entertaining opening ceremony.

"Team Fiji, looking very smart in their "noble banner blue" walk out uniforms drew many comments from spectators."

Team Fiji's chef-de-mission Lyndall Fisher presented Fiji's gift to the Provost of Glasgow. Laced with top athletes such as Banuve Tabakaucoro, Younis Bese, Eugene Volmer and Leslie Copeland, Team Fiji is confident of a good outing against the best to mark its return to the Games.

The Games officially begins on Thursday (Fiji Time).
