Revolution Day in Egypt

Revolution Day refers to the public holiday in Egypt on 23 July, the anniversary of the Egyptian Revolution of 1952 which led to the declaration of the modern republic of Egypt, ending the period of the Kingdom of Egypt. It is the biggest secular public holiday in Egypt. This day is considered the national day of Egypt.

In the evening of 23 July 1952, the Free Officers Movement led by Muhammad Naguib and Gamal Abdel Nasser commenced the military coup d’état that launched the Revolution, and ultimately led to the abdication of King Farouk.
