I'd be curious to know if there any other members on this MB besides me who have been caught up in May 17 celebrations, and what their most vivid impact/memory of this event is?

What is May 17th mean in Norway, other than Flag Day, whatever that means? What does it mean to you and what are your most vivid memories of that day?

Grunnlovsdag means Constitution Day. On the 17th of may in 1814 Norway got it's Constitution after the dissolution of the union with Denmark for 400 years. Of course we had to wait almost 100 years more until we were completely independent (Norway went directly from a union with Denmark to a union with Sweden) but some saw the break up with Denmark as a chance to become more independent.

Flag Day is an official flag-flying day, in other words, we put out our flags.
