This year Iceland celebrates the 80th anniversary of the foundation of the modern republic on 17 June 1944. A new constitution took effect, and the momentous event was celebrated at Þingvellir, Iceland‘s ancient parliamentary site. The festivities attracted huge crowds, estimated at 25 to 30 thousand (about one-fifth of the population).

Reykjanesbær Heritage Museum has in its collection the flag flown over the festivities in 1944. It is quite large, over 23 m2, and will be on display in Duus Museum Hub this summer.
