Happy National Day Brunei Darussalam!
On 23 February 2021, the 37th celebration of #Brunei National Day. On 1 January 1984, Brunei gained its independence from the United Kingdom after almost two decades of being considered a UK protectorate. The Proclamation of #Independence was read by His Majesty Hassanal Bolkiah at midnight on January 1. However, the British control was formally over on 23 February 1984. Thus, it is this date that now commemorates Brunei’s independence.
