Andalusian flag

Andalusia Day, Día de Andalucía in Spanish, is a holiday celebrated only in the region of Andalucia to commemorate the referendum for Andalucia to become an autonomous community within Spain, which was held on February 28, 1980. This day is celebrated every year on February 28th.


Schools and most businesses are closed or have shortened hours on this day, so be sure to check opening hours of any business before you head out. Children in the region have the day off, so you will find many children out and about with their family celebrating the event heading to private parties with music, traditional dance, food and drink. Some cities celebrate the day with organized events or meals offering traditional food and entertainment, so look around for these.

You will probably see the green and white Andalusian flag widely displayed in shops, businesses and hanging out of many balconies on Andalusia Day.
