Hari Proklamasi Indonesia - Indonesian Independence Day

‘Selemat Hari Raya Kemerdekaan', Indonesians celebrate the proclamation of independence from 350 years of Dutch colonial rule.

Festivities abound in cities and villages alike, organized by the government, neighbourhood community associations and organizations. The Indonesian Declaration of Independence was officially proclaimed at 10.00 a.m. sharp on Friday, August 17, 1945. The declaration marked the start of the five year diplomatic and armed-resistance of the Indonesian National Revolution, fighting against the forces of the Netherlands until the latter officially acknowledged Indonesia’s independence in 1949.
