THE FLAG IS FLYING FOR SCANIA

21 AUGUST - The Scanian Unification Day
The day in the year 1103 when the Catholic Church confirmed the ancient region of Scania - consisting of the four provinces of Halland, Skåne, Blekinge and Bornholm - as one unified entity.

15 FEBRUARY - The Scanian Remembrance Day.
The Day in 1679 when the Scanian resistance fighting against the invasion by Sweden was finally crushed. This day marked the end of the resistance era of that time.

The third sunday of July - The Scanian Flag's Day.
The Day - the third Sunday in July - is recognised as the official Scanian Flag's Day.

24 JANUARY - The Scanian Recognition Day.
The Day in 1993 when Scania again was established with its own voice on the international arena after 335 years of silence. That is the date SSF became a full member of the UNPO.
