About Territory Day
The Territory Day is observed on July 1st of every year in British Virgin Island. This holiday organized into 1956 when the federation of the Leeward Islands, created on 1872, was dissolved. Part of the Virgin Islands chain, it consists of the islands of Tortola, Anegada. The majority of British Virgin Islanders are of African or African-European descent. The islands are generally hilly, and many have lagoons with coral reefs and barrier beaches. In 1666 the islands were a haunt for pirates, and Tortola was held by Dutch buccaneers until it was taken by English planters. The islands were part of the Colony of the Leeward Islands from 1872 until 1956. When the British Virgin Islands became a separate colony. The holiday began to be “Territory Day”, although it was not until 1978 that this is called “Colony Day”. It is a public holiday of Virgin Island. But June 2008 this change was not implemented.
