A strong sense of pride is displayed each year as Arubans celebrate their Flag and Anthem Day.
The Flag of Aruba was officially adopted on March 18th 1976, along with the official anthem " Aruba Dushi Tera" composed by Padu del Caribe , Hubert Booi and Rufo Wever.
An impressive folkloric production marking the National Anthem and Flag Day holiday is held each year on March 18th at Plaza Betico Croes in Oranjestad.
This official national holiday celebration in Aruba also features many cultural events showcasing local gastronomy of Aruba, as well as sporting events and games throughout the island for kids and adults.
