National Day of United Kingdom

The National Day of the United Kingdom, also known as the “British National Day,” is not a commonly celebrated holiday. The closest thing to a national day in the UK is “St. George’s Day,” which is celebrated on the 23rd April which is in honor of England’s patron saint. Note however, the four constituent nations of the UK (England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland) all have National Saint’s days.

See also the National day of Switzerland as well as the National Day of Sweden and the National Day of Spain.
