Croatia Independence Day

This holiday is celebrated in Croatia to mark the day in 1991 that the Croatian Parliament voted to cut constitutional ties with Yugoslavia. The Croatians had declared their independence three months earlier, on June 25 (Croatia Statehood Day), but a three-month moratorium was placed on implementation of the decision to give European negotiators a chance to broker an agreement.

Congratulations, Croatia!

The breakup of Yugoslavia showed us that if an overwhelming number of people in a region want to declare their independence, then they should be able to do so.

Good luck to Catalonia on its bid for independence.
Good luck to Scotland if it ever votes for independence.
Good luck to Northern Ireland if it ever votes to join Ireland.
Good luck to the Kurds in Iraq, Syria, and Turkey in their long struggle for independence.
Good luck to Quebec if it ever votes for independence.


Some people in California are talking about seceding from the United States.

No doubt some Americans are thinking "Good riddance!"

President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović congratulated citizens with this message.

“To all Croatians and Croatian citizens in the Homeland and throughout the world, sincere congratulations on Independence Day of the Republic of Croatia. Among the momentous dates in our history, 8 October is cherished as the day when the final and irrevocable decision on the independence of the Republic of Croatia became effective.

This historical goal was achieved after long centuries of struggle for survival and freedom. Therefore, with gratitude today we recall all those throughout history whose sacrifice in labor and lives contributed to the achievement of this goal.

Today, as an independent state which is a full-fledged member of the international community and the European Union, we have all the formal preconditions for our nation and society to develop freely and be affirmed in the world. But the real force of our state lies within us, in our community and self-confidence, in our youth and our faith in the future.

I am confident that we will reach all the developmental goals we are striving for. I believe in the future of our independent Croatia!”
