Swedes celebrate their National Day on 6 June in honour of two historical events. On 6 June 1523, Gustav Vasa was elected king, and on the same date in 1809, the country adopted a new constitution. Not known for displaying their national pride, this day offers a rare chance to see Swedes waving their flag about.
So, yesterday, together with my Swedish wife Angela and friends we attended the national day celebrations in our home town of Nynashamn where we presently reside. Here are some photos of the event.
