About Nordic Day
Nordic Day (23 March) celebrates Nordic co-operation between Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden as well as the Faroe Islands, Greenland and Åland. This year marks 61 years since co-operation was made official through the Helsinki Treaty in 1962, more commonly known as the Nordic Constitution. Co-operation was established in the years after the Second World War, among other things with the aim that the Nordic countries should together foster security and uphold peace and democracy. Co-operation has grown over the years and today covers several political areas, with the aim of the Nordic Region becoming the most sustainable and integrated region in the world by 2030.
