National Day of Spain 2020

Fiesta Nacional de España / National Day of Spain

The Government and the Royal Household are finalizing the act of commemoration of the National Holiday on Monday the 12th, which for the first time in decades will not be celebrated with a great parade through the center of Madrid but will be replaced by an austere military act in the Plaza de la Armería of the Royal Palace.

Traditionally, the Fiesta Nacional de España on October 12 is celebrated with a great military parade through the streets of Madrid, with the participation of thousands of members of the Armed Forces, military vehicles and planes; It is followed by a reception in the Royal Palace attended by the powers of the State, former presidents of the Government and representatives of the economic, university and civil society world. However, this year all these events have been altered by the pandemic and the Government and the Royal House have been working for months on an alternative that complies with the health regulations imposed by Covid-19. The entire organization will be pending until the last minute on the evolution of the virus in Madrid and the measures adopted to prevent its spread.

The plan includes holding a military act in the courtyard of the Royal Palace - where the tribute to the victims of the coronavirus was held - presided over by the king and with the Government and the main authorities of the State, including regional presidents.

The event is expected to include a military endowment and a tribute to the flag. It is also expected that the Patrulla Águila, the acrobatic unit of the Spanish Air Force, will draw the colors of the flag in the sky of Madrid, according to the organization. It has also been contemplated that the Legion has some prominence, since 2020 is their centenary and the commemoration that it had planned has also been greatly altered by the coronavirus.
