When is Flag Day?

On 4th November each year, Panama has a public holiday for Flag Day.

This holiday is celebrated on 4th November as it forms a bridge day between Separation Day and Colon Day.

History of Flag Day

The Panamanian flag was designed and made by María de la Ossa de Amador on 1 November 1903. The design was worked on while plans to become a nation were still secret.

Did you know?

Due to the beneficial shipping laws in Panama, over 8,000 ships around the world fly the flag of Panama, which is more ships that are registered in the USA and China combined.

A different design for the flag was originally submitted, based on the U.S. flag marking their support for Panamanian independence, but the design was rejected by the Panamanian leader at the time.

Flag Day is one of the most colourful of all the holidays and festivals in Panama, with the whole country seemingly festooned with national flags.
