National Day Of The Republic Of China
The National Day of the Republic of China, also referred to as Double Ten Day or Double Tenth Day, is the national day that is held in the Republic of China. It commemorates the start of the Wuchang Uprising of 10 October 1911 (10-10 or double ten), which led to the end of the Qing Dynasty in China and establishment of the Republic of China on 1 January 1912.
During the course of the Chinese Civil War, the government of the Republic of China lost control of mainland China, fleeing to the Island of Taiwan in December 1949. The National Day is now mainly celebrated in ROC-controlled Taiwan, but is also celebrated by many overseas Chinese.
