The controversial flagpole project VROMI-Minister Christophe Emmanuel initiated on the Bell property just behind the Harold Jack Hill came a step closer to reality on Friday when a crew erected the massive flagpole. It looks like the St. Maarten flag will be hoisted at this location in time for St. Maarten Day. Remarkably, the truck at the top of the hill has a French license plate.
