Signed 52 years before the events that ultimately destroy almost all humanity, the Articles of Colonisation formed the united government of the Twelve Colonies of Kobol.

This event was apparently in response to the Cylon War to unite against a common enemy. Before the Articles, each colony appeared to behave more as a sovereign nation, and there was open fighting between the colonies.

The anniversary of the signing of the Articles is the Colonial Day holiday
