Dia di Himno y Bandera

From Wednesday, March 18, 2020 March 18, 2020

A strong sense of pride is displayed each year as Arubans celebrate their Flag and Anthem Day. On March 18, 1948, the Aruban politician Shon A. Eman presented the first formal proposal for Aruba's separation from the Netherlands Antilles. In 1976, twenty-eight years later to the day, political leader Betico Croes declared the first Flag & Anthem Day. Arubans are especially proud of their beautiful anthem, "Aruba Dushi Tera," a waltz composed by three of Aruba's celebrated artists: Juan Chabaya “Padu” Lampe, Rufo Wever, and Hubert Booi. A special work of art can be appreciated at Plaza Padu located at downtown Oranjestad which is dedicated to the composers of the anthem.
