Croatia Statehood Day History
Croatian Statehood Day celebrates the nation's historical decision to separate from the other Yugoslav republics. On 19 May 1991, 94% of Croatians voted for separation in a referendum. A month later, on 25 June 1991, the Croatian Parliament adopted the decision and began the process of separation from the other Yugoslav republics. Although the nation declared its independence on this day, it would take another 3 months for it to come into effect following unsuccessful negotiations with Yugoslavia.
Croatia's Statehood Day is celebrated annually on 25 June, a day that marks the official proclamation of independence. Originally, the day was celebrated on 30 May but since 2002, it has been celebrated on 25 June.
