Independence Day UMFL

On June 17, 1944, the Republic of Iceland was formally established and Iceland became independent after being under Danish rule. The day has been celebrated as the Icelandic National Day ever since. June 17 was chosen because it is the birthday of Jón Sigurðsson (1811-1879), the leader of Iceland’s independence movement (17uni.is).
