Since 1944, the National Day of Iceland has been celebrated annually on June 17th to commemorate when Iceland declared full independence from the Danish crown and formed the Republic of Iceland. June 17th became the official day of the holiday because it was the birthday of Jon Sigurdsson, Iceland's prominent leader in the Icelandic Independence Movement.  Each year Iceland celebrates on a bigger and better scale for the country's national holiday.
