Victory Day in United States

In Rhode Island, Victory Day is a state holiday celebrated on the second Monday of August to remember the sacrifices of veterans during World War II, including those taken as prisoners and tortured, injured or killed during the war. It is a mark of the anniversary of the Allies of victory over Japan during World War II. It was a federal holiday in the U.S. state of Rhode Island, a nationally recognized holiday from 1948 to 1975, but due to reference to good relationship with Japan it has been removed.


As proclaimed by then President Harry S. Truman, the official name of Victory Day was “Victory over Japan Day” and “V-J Day” observed on September 2, 1945 nationwide. For some reasons, the name was changed from “Victory over Japan Day” to “Victory Day” for the modern post-war Japan emerging in economic importance. Time to time few more name changes were attempted later, but all are unsuccessful, at last the name “Victory Day” remained the final official name.

On the occasion of Victory Day State, municipal offices, banks are closed, but federal offices, retail stores, liquor stores and supermarkets are open in Rhode Island.
