Did Sabah get its independence in 1957? 49 years ago

Hari Kemerdekaan means Independence day.

It is modelled after the Independence day of USA.

Whereas in USA, only the 4th of July is mentioned, the exact year of Independence is mentioned.

For USA states that were not part of the original colonial states, such as Texas and Hawaii, I wonder how they celebrate their independence day. Is it also on the 4th of July?

It is alright to celebrate the Independence day on any day, provided it is clear what it is for.

Certainly claiming something that is not correct is certainly stupid but this is the state of affairs for Sabah at the moment.

The signboard is perfectly alright in West Malaysia but it certainly is historically wrong when placed in Kota Kinabalu. It also reflects the colonised state of mind of Sabahans when very few complained about this or at least suggest some corrections.
