Reunification Day or Liberation Day is a public holiday in Vietnam that marks the event when the Viet Cong and North Vietnamese troops captured Saigon (now Ho Chi Minh City) on April 30, 1975. This event signalled the end of the Vietnam War or Resistance War Against America. It was the start of the transition period toward reunification, which occurred July 2, 1976 when the Provisional Revolutionary Government of the Republic of South Vietnam and North Vietnam merged to form the modern-day Socialist Republic of Vietnam. In the Overseas Vietnamese community, the day is remembered as the "Fall of Saigon", "Black April", National Day of Shame or National Day of Resentment. This is a commemorative day for exiled Vietnamese who served, were affected, and displaced in those overseas communities, and as such is a day of reflection.
