Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of Falklands Day

Falklands Day is the celebration of the first sighting of the Falkland Islands by John Davis in 1592, and is celebrated on August 14th.

It was once the national day of the Falklands, but that honour has gone to Liberation Day, which commemorates the end of the Falklands War. Falkland Day ceased be to a public holiday in 2002 when the Executive Council moved the holiday to provide for the re-introduction of Peat Cutting Monday, on the first Monday in October.
