The 6th of Juni has been the National Day in Sweden since 1985. It is not a big fest even if it has happened a few things the 6 of june in the past century. Gustav Vase became king a 6th of june and the constitution of 1809 was made a 6th of June. The first celebration were made in 1893 and this day become the flagday in 1916. 80 years after, in 1985, it became the National Day of Sweden.
