On 6 June 2019, Normandy will commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Allied landings and the Battle of Normandy. 


75e anniversaire du Débarquement et de la bataille de Normandie


Many celebratory and commemorative events will honour our liberating forces to:

  • transform this anniversary into a major event,
  • show Normandy’s gratitude to the veterans and nations who fought on its behalf,
  • celebrate the freedom and peace which Normandy now enjoys.

The “Normandy for Peace/75th anniversary” call for proposals

A “Normandy for Peace/75th anniversary of the Allied landings and the Battle of Normandy” label is to be made available for the promotion of these events.

To obtain this label, projects must meet the objectives and conditions which are listed in the “Normandy for Peace call for proposals” specifications. They will take place during the commemorative programme of events during the summer of 2019 (May to September 2019). 

To ensure the successful promotion of these events, projects should be submitted as soon as possible. Applications must be submitted before 1 March 2019 to benefit from paper promotions at the beginning of the tourist season.

Please pay particular attention to the content of the presentation so that the project can be promoted as effectively as possible.

The system for submissions will remain open until May 2019 to be able to share new events and ceremonies by other means.

Only events which receive this label will be eligible for promotion and possible funding.

Commemorative ceremonies

The Region intends to identify all the commemorative ceremonies which will take place between May and September 2019 to promote them. 

These commemorative ceremonies must be held with due regard for the existing ethical code and protocol; they must also be accessible to the general public and give young people a significant role.
