Hispanic Day

Hispanic Day is an annual celebration in Spain which falls on the 12th of October, coinciding with the Feast of Our Lady of the Pillar in the autonomous Spanish region, Aragon. Hispanic Day is a public holiday for the general population, and it commemorates the advent of Christopher Columbus to the Americas in 1492.

The celebrations of Hispanic Day take place in Madrid, the capital city of Spain, where the national flag of Spain is raised, overseen by the king. Subsequently, a military parade comprised of representatives of the Spanish military units is led by the king and the prime minister. Above the pre-determined parade route, military airshows are conducted, where military planes spray yellow and red smoke; representing the flag of Spain. These events and celebrations are usually broadcasted live on news and media outlets.
