15 December - Koninkrijksdag or Kingdom Day
The day commemorates the 1954 signing of the Statute for the Kingdom of the Netherlands by Queen Juliana in the Knights' Hall.
The Kingdom of the Netherlands is made up of four countries: the Netherlands, Aruba, Curaçao and St Maarten. Koninkrijksdag is the commemoration of the signing of the Charter for the Kingdom of the Netherlands on 15 December 1954 in Aruba, Curaçao, the Netherlands, and Sint Maarten. When 15 December falls on a Sunday, the commemoration takes place on Monday 16 December. Kingdom Day is, unlike Koningsdag (English: King's Day), not an official national holiday, but government buildings are instructed to fly the flag of the Netherlands.
On this day, New Dutch citizens obtain their citizenship. A flag instruction applies on December 15: the flag goes out on all main buildings of the central government.
