event image
Cape Town, South Africa - 31 May 1910 was the day that the Union of South Africa came into being.

The Union of South Africa came from the merging of the Cape Colony that was under British rule and the Colony of Natal as well at the Transvaal and the Orange River Colony. South Africa became a Republic on 31 May 1961 and 40 years later the day would be remembered for the day the ANC led government destroyed the monument of former prime minister Johannes Gerhardus Strijdom. Republic day was a public holiday until the ANC took control of South Africa and is mostly not celebrated by the majority of South Africans anymore.
