The Day of Victory and Homeland Thanksgiving, the Day of Croatian Veterans and the Anniversary of the Operation Storm, is celebrated every year on 5th August in Croatia, on the day when the Croatian Army liberated the occupied Knin in 1995. and won the Homeland War. 25 years ago, on August 5th, 1995, Operation Storm returned the entire occupied territory to the Croatian constitutional order, except for Eastern Slavonia. The operation liberated 10,400 square kilometers, or 18.4 percent of Croatia's total area. The Storm, along with the Flash war actions, was a key operation that led to the end of the Homeland War. The liberation of Knin, the center of hostile rebellion in Croatia, achieved the most important strategic, political and military objective, not only of Operation Storm, but of the entire Homeland War. In just 84 hours of Operation Storm, which engaged nearly 200,000 Croatian soldiers and liberated more than 10,000 square kilometers of previously occupied territory, the Croatian Army accomplished all its goals and enabled Croatia's independence and freedom.
Epidemiological measurements dictate how to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Storm in Knin.
The central celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Storm willbe celebrate in Knin on the plateau of Ante Starčević Square, where between 500 and 600 guests will gather due to epidemiological measures, from where they will be addressed by President Zoran Milanović, retired General Ante Gotovina and Prime Minister Andrej Plenković.
The evening before, on August 4, the Croatian flag will be raised at the Knin Fortress, and the President of the Republic will organize a reception for Croatian war commanders, and on some occasions hand out medals and higher ranks to some.
