Sunday, September 17, 2017. A group of Belizeans traveled to Sarstoon Island on Belize’s southern border with Guatemala on Saturday.

The group reached Sarstoon Island during the second annual Sarstoon Eco Challenge.

When the group arrived, they raised the Belize flag and sang the Belize National Anthem.

As “Land of the Free” was being sung, a Guatemalan military vessel which was at the mouth of the Sarstoon River, approached.

The soldiers, with military weapons in hand and a cameraman in tow, watched as the Belizeans sang the Belize National Anthem.
