About Swiss National Day

The Swiss National Day is the national occasion of Switzerland, set on 1 August. In spite of the fact that the establishing of the Swiss Confederacy was first celebrated on this date in 1891 and every year since 1899, it has just been an official occasion since 1994. The date is roused by the date of the Federal Charter of 1291, Pacte du Grutli, set "toward the beginning of August" when "three Alpine cantons swore the pledge of confederation" an activity which later came to be viewed as the establishing of Switzerland."

The record is one of a few dozen agreements verified for the region of Switzerland in the time of the mid-thirteenth to mid-fourteenth century. The establishment of the Old Swiss Confederacy had been for the most part connected with the Bund of Brunnen of 1315, or with the Rütlischwur, dated to 1307 by Aegidius Tschudi. The Federal Charter of 1291 first accepted awesome significance in a report by the Federal Department of Home Affairs of 21 November 1889, recommending a festival in Bern in 1891 that would consolidate the city's 700th commemoration with the Confederacy's 600th commemoration. Until 2013, the biggest Swiss National Day occasion in the USA was sorted out and held every year by the Swiss Benevolent Society of New York.
