Yes.
17 Agustus is Hari Kemerdekaan (Independence day).
It's a national holiday.

Not all national holidays (Indepence days included) are popular in some countries... Indonesia seems to have 'a lot of' national holidays. What do people do on August 17th in Indonesia?

The obvious thing is Flag Ceremony at formal institutions, then at villages, schools, etc. we also hold some competitions such as panjat pinang, balap karung, lomba makan kerupuk, and many more! :-D

Should be one thousand nine hundred forty five. The word "and" signifies a decimal (1900.45)
