When Sweden won both World Championship and Olympic gold in ice hockey the same year.
And also when our Crown Princess gave birth to an heir to the throne (Princess Estelle Bernadotte I)

And last, but not in any way least, when Poland was free from communism, and once again stood as a free, democratic republic.

Back in the 1940's when the US shot down (what may have been) an advance scout, flying saucer in the desert SW and preventing enslavement of the whole human race as well as the inevitable painful series of body probes, you're all welcome for that one.
