A "National Day" is one of the highlights in a country's celebratory calendar as it recognizes the birth of a nation, either in history or symbolically. This nationhood can be symbolized by the date of independence, of becoming republic or a significant date for a patron saint or a ruler (birthday, accession, removal). Often a national holiday, celebrations range from fireworks to kites and dates can be fixed or movable.
