    Secular holiday : Commemorates the January 9, 1964 riots over sovereignty of the Panama Canal Zone. The riots erupted after a Panamanian flag was torn down during conflict between Panamanian students and U.S. citizens living in the Panama Canal Zone over the right of the Panamanian flag to be flown alongside the U.S. flag. United States' Army units became involved in suppressing the violence after Canal Zone police were overwhelmed. After three days of fighting, 22 Panamanians and four U.S. citizens were killed.
