Belgian National Day History
Belgian National Day celebrates the birth of the Belgian nation, Belgian culture and pride and Belgium’s independence from the Netherlands. On July 21, 1831, Leopold of Saxe-Cobourg and Gotha swore allegiance to the Belgian constitution and became King Leopold I, the first King of the Belgians. The new King’s swearing in marked the beginning of a constitutional monarchy that ruled over the independent state of Belgium.
Belgian National Day is celebrated annually on 21 July. The day was first celebrated in 1890 and the Saxe-Cobourg and Gotha bloodline still heads the Belgium State today.
