The National Day of Sweden (Sveriges nationaldag) is a national holiday observed in Sweden on the 6th of June. Prior to 1983, the day was celebrated as Swedish flag day (Svenska flaggans dag).
The photos in this post are from today’s celebrations in our town park. We had the best possible weather for such outdoor festivities, except that there were such sharp contrasts between light and shadow that is was hard to get good pictures. (In my editing here I sort of chose the “if you can’t fix it, use it” approach...)
The Swedish National Anthem
”Du gamla, du fria’”– “Thou ancient, thou free…'’
