Sweden's National Day

Until as recently as 1983, Sweden was one of few countries not to celebrate a national day. But since as far back as June 6 1916, they have celebrated Swedish Flag day, which ultimately became National Day. Today, celebrating Sweden’s national day is an all out affair, with almost every town having their own speeches, festivities, music and generous dishing out of Swedish flags.

The biggest and grandest of these celebrations takes place at Skansen, an open-air museum in Stockholm where the royal family meet together with oh say 15,000 of their “closest” friends, the public.

The 6th of June was chosen to celebrate Swedish nationalism as it marks the anniversary of Gustav Vasa being elected King of Sweden in 1523. It is also the day that Sweden’s constitution was signed in 1809.

If you’re expecting a lazy National Day in Sweden, you’ll find it’s business as usual however the blue and yellow flag and banners abound.
