The 228 Peace Memorial Day commemorates the February 28 Incident in 1947.

This day is also known as the 228 Memorial Day which is when all flags in the nation will be flown at half-mast as a mark of respect for the dead. 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.

🗓️ The 228 Peace Memorial Day is a public holiday in Taiwan, making it a day off for schools and most businesses.
