Hambach Festival Argia and Steven What is Hambach Festival? What is at the festival
when it is first celebrated? The historical problem The result Pictures Johann August Wirth Pictures Hambach Festival was a German national democratic festival. It is disguised as a non-politcal country fair.

Hambach festival is first celebrated on the 27 May to 30 May 1832 at Hambach Castle. It was usually to celebrate the Germany’s unity, freedom and democracy. There are approximately 30.000 people in that festival.

They raised the German tricolor which is black, red and gold.
- Black: Determination
- Red: Hardiness, bravery, strength & valor (Great courage)
- Gold/yellow: A symbol of generosity

The festival takes place around the Hambach Castle. In the south German states, after the Paris Revolution in 1830, everything is increased, tax are increased highly and also tariffs. So, 30,000 people take place in the Hambach Festival including Johann August Wirth. He makes a speech to overthrow the Germany monarchies. Johann August Wirth is a German lawyer, writer and politician. He made a speech with his three other colleagues in the Hambach Festival which flee away from the country. But he resist going with them, so he was sentenced in prison for 2 years. Hambach Castle Johann August Wirth „Fatherland – freedom – yes! A free German fatherland – that is the meaning of today´s festival. These are the words that have echoed like thunder throughout all the German territories, rattling the bones of all traitors to the German national issue, yet encouraging all true patriots. May Germany rise again from the debris under which time´s force and the nobles´ treachery have buried it.

And the day will dawn when Germans from the Alps and the North Sea, from the Rhine, the Danube and the Elbe, will embrace as brothers; when all the suffocating regulations and tolls, all the symbols of division, obstruction and oppression will vanish. This if the spirit of today´s festival, the spirit of the renaissance of our fatherland.

Long live the free, the united Germany! Long live the Poles, the Germans´ allies! Long live the French, the Germans´ brothers who honour our nationality and sovereignty ! Long live the Fatherland, the rule of the people and the union of peoples! Vivat!“ The confederation pass the Six Article which ban the student societies wearing the German tricolor and do another protest. Thank You For Your Attention! The Speech (Translated)
