The history of the worldwide VW Beetle day:
The Worldwide Day of the VW Beetle was the result of an arduous work that took some years and that involved clubs of many parts of the world. Alexander Gromow had the idea and worked aiming the goal to launch it internationally. By mean of letters, the Internet was not accessible for the public at that time, as through the informative bulletin of the Fusca Clube do Brasil (Called “A BANANINHA” – the nickname of the directional semaphores of the older VW Types) he divulged the idea and harmonized the choice of the date. The date 22 of June finally prevailed; due to the fact that back in this date in 1934 a contract that gave beginning to the development of the VW Beetle by Ferdinand Porsche was signed. Details can be seen in the Declaration of Bad Camberg, which was authenticated with the signatures of Dr. Bernd Wiersch, custodian of the Auto Museum Volkswagen, Mr. Heinz Willy Lottermann, great old collector of VW cars and promoter of the events of Bad Camberg (deceased in 2000) and by Alexander Gromow himself as the creator of the idea of this commemorative day.
The Declaration of Bad Camberg was distributed on June, the 24th,1995, in three languages to the attendants of this important event that had come of the five continents. Today this declaration is shown on many websites on the Internet, having been translated to many languages, including Japanese.

This occurs in an independent way of events that are carried out through by many clubs around the world on the weekends next to this day.
As some will go to take their VW Beetles out the garage and others already use the VW Beetle daily it is necessary to divulge to the others that on 22 of June, those cars are part of an international event of homage to the VW Beetle.
