Honours the contributions and accomplishments of deserving Caymanians. A holiday since 2003

National Heroes Day is a public holiday celebrated in the Cayman Islands on the fourth Monday in January.

Unlike other National Heroes Days in the Caribbean, the same people aren't celebrated on this day each year.

Instead, a committee comprised of public and private sector representatives meets to chose the theme for the following year's holiday.

Different award categories are then established with the public able to nominate suitable individuals. The National Heroes Day committee then decide on who are deserving recipients of the awards.

In 2019, the pioneers who contributed to the creation of the Cayman Islands’ Coat of Arms will be honoured.

The theme chosen for 2018 was sports, with members of the public being invited to nominate people in the community who have made outstanding contributions to sports in the Cayman Islands.

The theme chosen for 2017 was Tourism, honouring the important role that business sector plays in the economy of the Cayman Islands, and the 2016 theme was agriculture with over 300 people being honoured for their contribution to farming in the Cayman Islands.

National Heroes Day has been a public holiday in the Cayman Islands since 2003.
