Tunisia National Day 2021 – Today’s Doodle celebrates Tunisia’s National Day, an occasion marking the North African country’s 65th year of independence. On this day in 1956, Tunisia ended France’s colonial protectorate through an accord, and the following year, the country formally became a republic.
Through the years, this day has been celebrated with government speeches and parades, and some local leaders lay wreaths in tribute. For many, it’s a day of remembrance and gratitude. This year, Tunisia’s National Day will also be commemorated with the launch of “Challenge One,” Tunisia’s very first satellite. If successful, the satellite will mark the genesis of Tunisia’s foray into space and give the greenlight to the deployment of 30 additional constellation satellites the country plans to launch over the next decade.
Meanwhile on Earth, the red-and-white flag of Tunisia, depicted in today’s Doodle art, is hoisted to honor the country’s national day, but this national symbol will stay within the atmosphere.
Happy National Day, Tunisia!
