National day is a fairly young tradition to us Swedes. Newverthe less it’s time to celebrate the national day in Sweden (also know as the day of the Swedish flag). We celebrate it in memory of when the Swedish King who, in June 6 1809, signed the papers that later became the Swedish constitution, even the current constitution of today was signed June 6 1974.
For some reason June 6th didn’t become a public holiday until 2005. So help us build our new traditions by joining in our National Anthem
|The Swedish National Anthem||Translation|
|Du gamla, du fria, du fjällhöga Nord, du tysta, du glädjerika sköna!|
Jag hälsar dig, vänaste land uppå jord, din sol, din himmel, dina ängder gröna, din sol, din himmel, dina ängder gröna.
Du tronar på minnen från fornstora dar, då ärat ditt namn flög över jorden.
|Thou ancient, thou freeborn, thou mountainous North, in beauty and peace our hearts beguiling,|
I greet thee, thou loveliest land on the earth, thy sun, thy skies, thy verdant meadows smiling.
Thy sun, thy skies, thy verdant meadows smiling.
Thy throne rests on mem’ries from great days of yore, when worldwide renown was valour’s guerdon.
