Independence Day in Tunisia on March 20th


TUNISIA, the North African country located between Algeria to the west and Libya to the east, is celebrating its independence day on Sunday, March 20th. Tunisia gained independence from France in 1956. Therefore, Tunisians are celebrating their 60th anniversary of independence from a colonial European empire. To make Tunisia's independence day more special, March 20th is also International Day of Happiness! Tunisia's flag was mentioned in the country's constitution in 1959, although the design dates back into the 1800s (image from Flagpedia.net). If you are a Tunisian citizen reading this, thanks for visiting my blog today and Happy Independence Day to you!
