Flag Days of the World

Flag days of the World is a list of flag days observed by countries throughout the world. It was started as a separate website in 1998 by Edward Mooney Jr. After he cared for it for five years, in 2003 this website was incorporated into FOTW with his permission.


What are flag days?

  • A "Flag Day" is a day when the adoption of a flag is celebrated.
    For example: On 11 January when Norfolk Island celebrates Flag Proclamation Day.
  • But "Flag Day" is also short for "Flagging Day" or "Flag-flying Day"; a day when people collectively fly their flags or when government personnel is instructed to fly flags from governmental buildings.
    For example: On 14 July in France flags are flown to observe Bastille Day.

To distinguish between these two categories, "real" Flag Days are listed together with the appropriate flag, where other flag days are listed as text only.
