This map shows Independence Day around the world.
An Independence Day is an annual celebration commemorating the anniversary of a nation's assumption of independent statehood, usually after ceasing to be a colony or part of another state, more rarely after the end of a military occupation. Most countries honor their respective independence day as a national holiday and some countries or nations' independence-date honors are contested.
Note: Not all countries have independence days, instead they celebrate another national day (not included in this map).
