The Republic Day of Turkey is a public holidays in Turkey and Northern Cyprus, commemorating the founding of the Republic of Turkey in 1923. It lasts 35 hours, starting each year at 1:00 pm on 28 October.
Turan is currently the only Turkish international at Barcelona and the third Turk to have ever played for the club.
The Turkish international winger joined the Spanish giants on a five-year deal from Atletico Madrid over the summer but has yet to play a single game for his new side due to the FIFA transfer ban currently imposed on the club.
Barcelona currently have two Turkish sponsors in electronic goods producer Beko and tyre manufacturer Lassa.
