18 March 12020 is National Anthem and Flag Day in Aruba, Cheikh Al Maarouf Day in Comoros, and Soldiers’ Day in Mongolia, according to Time and Date dot com.

The saint of the day is Cyril of Jerusalem, the fourth century (10300s) bishop who got himself deposed for selling off expensive gifts to the church to pay for food for the starving.
