  Local name
Dag van het volkslied en de Vlag

Located in the south Caribbean Sea, Curaçao is a constituent country of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.

The country's flag was adopted in 1984, designed by Martin Den Dulk.

The blue symbolizes the sky and sea, and the yellow stripe, the sunshine that bathes the island. The two stars represent the islands Curacao and Klein Curacao.

The words of the original 'Anthem of Curaçao' were written by Friar Radulphus in 1898. Until a new melody was written for it in 1930, the words were sung to the tune of the Dutch National anthem. In 1978 the lyrics were rewritten, as the original lyrics were seen as a bit 'colonial'.

Flag Day is celebrated with official ceremonies and cultural events at Plaza Brion and the Village of Barber.
