Panamá Flag Day - November 4th

Panama Flag Day is celebrated on November 4 every year to commemorate the country’s second official liberation from external aggressors. Panama has the unique distinction of having two Independence Days. Panamanians have valiantly resisted colonization for centuries. Whether Spain, Colombia, or later the U.S. — several forces have tried to stifle Panamanian self-determination. The country has emerged stronger every time. Flag Day celebrates Panama’s official separation from the Republic of Colombia in 1903. But wait, there is more to the holiday. November in Panama is a month of celebration. The country parties for five days straight, of which Flag Day falls on day two.
