Islamic Republic Day is celebrated on Farvardin 12 of the Iranian calendar to mark the anniversary of the 1979 establishment of the Islamic Republic. A referendum on creating an Islamic Republic was held in Iran on 30 and 31 March 1979. The referendum asked "Islamic Republic Yes or no?". Although some groups objected to the wording and choice and boycotted the referendum, it was approved by 99% of voters. Farvardin 12 falls on or around April 1 in the Gregorian calendar.
