23 December was HM The Queen's 77th birthday.

The Queen's birthday is a national flag day and an official day on which salutes are fired. The Swedish Armed Forces therefore fired 21-gun salutes from the salute stations at Skeppsholmen in Stockholm, and in Boden, Härnösand, Karlskrona and Gothenburg.
