About Belgium National Day


I am not a history enthusiast but I chanced on some facts about Belgium. As I watched Belgians celebrate their National Day, It was interesting to learn that Belgium has two contrasting faces – as it is both an ancient yet a young nation. It is true that the Belgians were first mentioned in a book by Julius Caesar about 2000 years ago, but the independent State of Belgium was not born until October 4 1830.

Till today Belgium celebrates its National Day on July 21 0f every year to commemorate the date that the first king of Belgium (Leopold I) took the constitutional oath (i.e. July 21 1831).
