Holidays Around the World for this date:
 
Army Day (Guatemala)
In Guatemala, Día del Ejército is celebrated on 30 June. It is remembered because in 1871 the Liberal Revolution or "Revolución Liberal", led by Miguel García Granados and Justo Rufino Barrios, marched on the streets of Guatemala City putting an end to the Conservadora administration formerly headed by Rafael Carrera.

Independence Day, celebrates the independence of Democratic Republic of the Congo from Belgium in 1960.
An Independence Day is an annual event commemorating the anniversary of a nation's assumption of independent statehood, usually after ceasing to be a group or part of another nation or state; more rarely after the end of a military occupation. Most countries observe their respective independence days as a national holiday, and in some cases the observance date is controversial or contested.

Philippine–Spanish Friendship Day (Philippines)
​The Philippine-Spanish Friendship Day (Spanish: Día de la Amistad entre España y Filipinas o Día de la Amistad Hispano-Filipina) celebrates the strong links between the Republic of the Philippines and the Kingdom of Spain. It is celebrated every June 30, remembering the day when General Emilio Aguinaldo, president of the Malolos Republic, issued a decree requiring the last Spanish soldiers who had garrisoned for almost a year inside Baler’s church be treated not as enemies and prisoners of war, but as friends, and that they receive the necessary permission for their return to Spain.

Senator Edgardo Angara, the main promoter of the Friendship Day, described this occasion as, "a glorious day for both countries because the Siege of Baler brought heroes and victory for both parties." Today, it is the symbol of the great friendship between both countries.
