Iceland celebrates 100 years of sovereignty

Today, Iceland celebrates 100 years as a free and sovereign state. In 1918, Iceland and Denmark signed a Union Treaty, effectively freeing Iceland from Denmark. This was the culmination of nearly a century long campaign for Icelandic self-determination.

Celebrations begin in central Reykjavik at 2 pm and the house of parliament, Alþingi, will be open on this occasion to the public and there will be displays of photographs and documents from this period.
