      Denmark's National Holiday

    • Amongst the European revolutions that began in 1848, King Frederick VII accepted the principle of a constiutional monarchy in 1849. The first Danish liberal Constitution was signed on 5 June, 1849 and became Constitution Day (Grundlovsdag). Unlike most countries Constitution Day is marked by political meetings rather than any sort of military ceremony.

      Sweden's National Holiday

    • Since 1983 Sweden's National Holiday has been celebrated on 6 June, celebrating two events: the anniversary of Gustav Vasa's proclamation as the King of Sweden on 6 June 1523 (ending the Danish domination in Sweden), and the adoption of the new constitution on 6 June 1809. This new constitution is symbol of a reaffirmation of Swedish civic values of the right to freedom of religion, press and expression.
