Malaysia Day 2017

Malaysia Day, which in Malay is called Hari Malaysia, is celebrated on 16 September. This year, 2017, Malaysia Day falls on Saturday.

Malaysia Day commemorates 16 September 1963, the day newly-independent Singapore and the East Malaysian states of Sabah and Sarawak, joined the Federation of Malaya to create the Malaysian Federation.

Incidentally, Singapore would separate from the federation two years later.

Interestingly, Malaysia Day was initially scheduled for 1 June 1963, but it was delayed twice. The first time the inaugural Malaysia Day was delayed was on 31 August 1963, which was the current Malaysia Day at the time. Malaysia Day was then delayed again, in order to organize referendums to take place. As a result of this, effectively, Malaysia now has two Malaysia Day celebrations.

The Malaysia Day on September 16th has been an official national holiday since 2010. Whilst announcing this holiday, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib stated that Malaysia Day would henceforth involve activities that would foster the Malaysia spirit and that Malaysia Day would also be celebrated with formal events, such as a parade in order to commemorate the significance of this historical day.
