December 1st was declared „Romania’s National Day/ Ziua nationala a Romaniei” in 1990. Named also Great Union Day / Ziua Marii Uniri, this day memorializes the unification of Transylvania and all the historical Romanian territories into ‘Greater Romania’ in 1918, under the tricolor Romanian flag.

The Wallachian prince Michael the Brave / Mihai Viteazul, is famous for briefly first uniting the three Principalities of Romania in May 1600 (the unification lasted for less than a year) : Wallachia, Moldavia and Transylvania and the dream of a unified Romania, linking all the historical Romanian territories, remained until our days.

„Starting today, you receive the command over the centuries: sit together those who have only one mother: Wallachia, Transylvania and Moldavia / De astăzi, veţi primi porunca cea din veac: să stea laolaltă cei dintr-o singură mamă: Ţara Românească, Ţara Ardealului şi Ţara Moldovei!” Michael the Brave

After more than 250 years, in 1857, the „Ad-hoc Assemblies” of Wallachia (Bucharest) and Moldavia (Iasi)  unanimously decided to unite the Wallachia and Moldavia principalities into one single state. On January 17, 1859, in Moldavia and on February 5, in Wallachia, the Romanians elected Colonel Alexandru Ioan Cuza as common ruler, achieving the union of the two Principalities in Romanian Nation State . The name of Romania was taken in 1962. In 1878 – In the Treaty of Berlin, Romania was recognized as an independent state by the Great Powers and Dobrojea with the Delta of the Danube became a county of Romania.

In 1918, at the end of the First World War, the Romanians of Bessarabia and Bucovina voted to unite their provinces to Romania. In Transilvania, The National Assembly (within over 100000 delegates) called on 1st of December at Alba Iulia, voted as well, to unite Transylvania and Banat with Romania. Thus Romania achieved its greatest territorial extent, with the unification of all Romanians in a single state, with the annexation of Transylvania, Banat, Bessarabia and Bucovina as counties of Romania. With the uniting of all the historical Romanian territories, was established

– great surge in Romania’s history.  The sovereignty of Romania over Transylvania was recognized after the „Treaty of Versailles” was signed in June 1919, and the new borders between the Hungary and Romania were defined in The treaties of St. Germain(1919) and Trianon (1920).

The December 1st  is usually celebrated as public holiday in Romania with a military parade in Bucharest, troops which will march under the „Triumph Arch / Arcul de Triumf”,  large manifestations in all big cities across the country, and manifestations in Romanian Embassies.

Have a Happy National Day, Romania! And for all the Romanians from all over the world: happiness, good health and enjoy a patriotic Romanian song played by Fuego & Irina Loghin: „We are always Romanians / Suntem romani mereu”.

Who sows wind will harvest storm… Cine seamana vant culege furtuna…
