The tradition of celebrating this day dates back to 1916 at the Stockholm Olympic Stadium, in honor of the election of King Gustav Vasa in 1523, as this is considered the cornerstone of modern Sweden. Some questioned the validity of this being considered a national holiday, as it was not considered a holiday until decades later. However, this event signifies the end of the Danish-ruled Kalmar Confederacy, so in a sense it is a mark of Swedish independence, even though the event happened too so long that it does not have a strong presence in the social consciousness either, such as Norwegian Constitution Day, Syttende Mai.
In 2005, it became an official Swedish holiday, replacing Whit Monday. This change results in fewer days off work (more working days) because June 6 periodically falls on a weekend, unlike Whit Monday, which is always celebrated on a Monday. Among the newer traditions that have emerged since Independence Day turned red is an invitation from the King to the public to tour the large sections of Stockholm Palace for a full day without paying the usual entrance fee.
