What is The National Day of Lebanon?
“Festival of the Independence” is The National Day of Lebanon. On November 22, Lebanon celebrates the anniversary of becoming an independent nation. Independence Day in Lebanon is a national holiday. Lebanon was under the administrative rule and political sovereignty of the Ottoman Empire from 1516 to 1918.
The state remained under French Mandate until November 26, 1941. A constitution adopted on May 25, 1926, established a democratic republic with a parliamentary system of government, but that came into full effect only on November 22, 1943. This day in Lebanon’s history became its Independence Day.
