History of Indonesian Independence Day:

Indonesia had been a Dutch settlement for more than 300 years when a gathering of progressives announced freedom on 17 August 1945. It took Indonesians four years of tact and equipped battle before their freedom was officially conceded by Queen Juliana of the Netherlands.

“The Indonesian language, now spoken by almost all 238 million inhabitants, is a variant of Malayan invented by nationalists in the 1920s…”

In spite of the giving of freedom in 1945, it wasn’t until 2005, that the Netherlands pronounced that they had chosen to acknowledge the date of 17 August 1945 as the date of Indonesia’s autonomy. Indonesia is an archipelago of more than 17,000 islands. It is the world’s fourth most crowded country. The greater part of Indonesia’s populace lives on Java, making it the world’s most crowded island.

The national flag of Indonesia is called ‘Sang Saka Merah-Putih’ (the sacred red and white) and was unveiled on 17 August 1945. The design is derived from the banner of the Majapahit Empire in East Java which ruled in the region before the arrival of the Dutch. The flag consists of two equal horizontal stripes; the top red and the bottom white. The red represents courage and the white is purity.
