Restoration of Independence Day

Independence Day is a national holiday in Azerbaijan, also known as 'State Sovereignty Day'.

It is celebrated on October 18th, on the anniversary of the day in 1991 when Azerbaijan left the USSR.


This day is essentially the second of two independence days celebrated in Azerbaijan. The first is Republic day which marks the establishment of the Democratic Republic of Azerbaijan on May 28th 1918. This republic only lasted two years before Azerbaijan became part of the Soviet Union. On October 18th 1991 the constitutional act "On the State Independence of the Republic of Azerbaijan" was approved and adopted by the Supreme Council of the Republic of Azerbaijan.


We join all the congratulations and wish Azerbaijan continuous development, new successes, peace and prosperity.
