Colonial Day (holiday)

From Battlestar Wiki, the free, open content Battlestar Galactica encyclopedia and episode guide

Colonial Day is an annual holiday celebrating the official signing of the Articles of Colonization in 52 BCH (48YR) (TRS: "Colonial Day").

Members of the Colonial Fleet consider its celebration to be patriotic, as Commander William Adama replies to President Laura Roslin that he would be nowhere else during a celebration of said holiday (TRS: "Colonial Day").


  • While Colonial Day is akin to celebrations surrounding Independence Day in the United States, it celebrates the ratification of important documents akin to the ratification of the U.S. Constitution.
  • The holiday is not mentioned again after the episode, suggesting that it has been abandoned or simply diminished in the succeeding years of the Fleet's sojourn.
