    228 Memorial Day - February 28

    Commemorates the February 28 Incident in 1947. On this day, all flags in the nation will be flown at half-mast as a mark of respect for the dead.

    Although it is not a “traditional” holiday, the 228 Incident (sometimes known as the “228 Massacre”) has been a recognized Taiwan national holiday since 1995. The incident started as an anti-government uprising on February 27th, 1947. The KMT (Kuomintang) was the leading party at the time.

    As the anti-government activity appeared to become more volatile, the KMT oppressed the uprising which resulted in 10,000 - 30,000 deaths as well as thousands of missing persons. For more than 50 years, this event was considered an unpatriotic taboo topic for Taiwanese and government officials. It wasn’t until the first democratically elected, and Taiwan born, president, Lee Deng-hui (李登煇) mentioned the incident in a speech to commemorate the day. At this time, the Taiwanese government stated that 2/28 would be a national holiday to remember those who lost their lives.

    Arbor Day in Taiwan - March 12

    Arbor Day has been a traditional holiday in Taiwan since 1927. Arbor Day has been a traditional holiday in since 1927. The Executive Yuan approved Arbor Day in the spirit of Dr. Sun Yat-sen.

    In 1914, the founder of the agricultural college at Nanking University suggested to the now-defunct Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry that China should imitate the practice in the United States of Arbor Day. The holiday would be held the same day as the Qingming Festival. However, for unknown reasons, the suggestion was not made through the formal process, so nothing came from this original request.

    After the successful conclusion of the Northern Expedition, the now-defunct Ministry of Agriculture and Minerals formally petitioned the Executive Yuan to establish Arbor Day to commemorate the passing of Dr. Sun Yat-sen, the Father of Modern China. He had been a major advocate of afforestation in his life, because it would increase people's livelihoods. The Executive Yuan approved Arbor Day in the spirit of Dr. Sun that year and has since been celebrated on March 12th for this purpose.
