Interesting note is that Peninsular Malaysia – Federation of Malaya is only celebrating our 59th Merdeka – years of Independence from Britain on August 31, 1957. Sarawak gained Independence on July 22, 1963 and Sabah on August 31, 1963 thus making the 53 years of Independence for them.
Federation of Malaysia was only formed on September 16, 1963 and thus only 53 years of Malaysian Independence only next month.

Hari Merdeka (Malaysian for ‘Independence Day’) refers to the day when theFederation of Malaya‘s independence from the British Empire was officially declared. At exactly 09:30 on 31 August 1957, the declaration was read by the first Chief Minister of Malaya, Tunku Abdul Rahman at the Merdeka Stadium in the presence of thousands of people including Malay Rulers, members of the federal government, and foreign dignitaries.

To commemorate the event, Hari Merdeka was declared a national holiday in Malaysia and observed annually on 31 August. The day should not be confused with Hari Malaysia (‘Malaysia Day’) that commemorates the formation of Malaysia on 16 September 1963, when North Borneo, Sarawak, and Singapore federated with the existing states of the Federation of Malaya.
