The Government of Croatia has released its annual list of official non-working public holidays in Croatia for the calendar year 2021, taking into account, for the second year, the changes to the list of Croatian public holidays announced at the end of 2019.

In 2012 (2012-02-09), the Government of Croatia's had announced that it was considering the elimination of 3 annual non-working public holidays; the Feast of Corpus Christi (late May or early June), the Anti-Fascist Resistance Day (June 22), and the National Day (June 25). But, over the next 8 years, nothing happened (2019-11-13, 2018-01-05, 2017-01-09, 2016-01-15, 2015-01-11, 2013-12-30 and 2012-12-31).

Then, at the end of last year, the Croatian government introduced amendments to the Croatian law on public holidays to declare a new Vukovar Remembrance Day national non-working public holiday in Croatia, and shift the dates of the Independence Day and Statehood Day holidays of Croatia (2019-11-13, 2019-10-10 and 2019-10-07), and these amendments were incorporated into the Law on Holidays, Remembrances and Non-working Days in the Republic of Croatia ("Zakon o blagdanima, spomendanima i neradnim danima u Republici Hrvatskoj"), and signed into law by the president of Croatia, Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović (2019-11-19).
