On this day in 1943 in Jajce began the Second Session of AVNOJ, at which Josip Broz Tito was proclaimed Marshal of Yugoslavia.

The Day of the Republic, when Macedonia was recognized as a state for the first time, and it is counted as an equal member of the future federation, was celebrated until 1991 and after the break-up of Yugoslavia. The holiday then ceased to be officially celebrated in all countries that emerged from the former SFRY.
