Putrajaya’s public holidays are mostly the same as other states and territories across Malaysia. However it does celebrate a special holiday called Federal Territory Day along with only two other territories.

Federal Territory Day is celebrated each year on February 1 in Putrajaya and celebrates Putrajaya’s designation as a federal territory in Malaysia in 2001. It was the third federal territory in the country, following Kuala Lumpur and Labuan.

Each year since 2007, citizens celebrate a different main theme for the holiday that represents unity, progress and prosperity. Starting in 2008, awards and medals have been presented to citizens who have contributed to the territories.
