The Flag of the Federation, commonly displayed on Federation Day.

Federation Day is a Federation patriotic holiday celebrated every 12 August to commemorate the signing of the Articles of the Federation and the establishment of the United Federation of Planets in the year 2161.

History[]

In the early 23rd century, many Federates on Earth celebrated the holiday by visiting the Starfleet War Memorial. (ENT novel: Last Full Measure)

Background[]
