Serbia National Day 2021 – Today’s Doodle celebrates Serbia’s National Day commemorating the First Serbian Uprising which began exactly 216 years ago. Known as the first revolution in the Balkan region, it paved the way for the drafting of the First Constitution of the Principality of Serbia, which was formally adopted on this day in 1835.
Also known as Statehood Day, Serbia’s National Day traditionally begins with a memorial service followed by a symbolic wreath laying in remembrance of the 1804 Serbian revolution. The commemorations continue with speeches from national leaders who reflect on Serbia’s progress to become the unified country it is today. Throughout the multi-day holiday and every day, the tricolor Serbian flag—depicted in today’s Doodle artwork—proudly stands as a symbol of the country’s solidarity.
Happy dan državnosti Srbije!
