Next on list is Antigua and Barbuda, Britain wanted them to join up with the West Indies Federation, which didn't last long, link below:-
Quote:-
"West Indies Federation,[1][2] also known as the West Indies,[3][4] the Federation of the West Indies[5] or the West Indian Federation,[6][7][8] was a short-lived political union that existed from 3 January 1958 to 31 May 1962."
The Capital was Port of Spain, that i don't have an exact fix on but Piarco is close enough

I didn't find any alignments for Argentina, they may have done this on actual time on day, and they have not been recorded.View attachment 105344
I have included the West Indies Federation that Antigua, Barbuda and Barbados belonged to briefly.
The Royal Assent took place in London on 17 November 1966, the Sun rose with Mercury and Venus being ancient Egyptian day marker, with Sirius setting, not all small islands are marked in this way, graph below:-

I can have a problem with South American Countries, they may sign at time with i have no idea of, or don't like Hermetic alignments being used in beliefs, what can be established is the origin of Belize, by the Convention of London on 14 July 1786, link below:-

Please note Benin was once the Republic of Dahomey and under French control, quote below:-
"Dahomey (Fon: Danhomè), was established on 4 December 1958, as a self-governing colony within the French Community. Prior to attaining autonomy, it had been French Dahomey, part of the French Union. On 1 August 1960, it attained full independence from France."
Also:-
"In 1975, the country was renamed Benin after the Bight of Benin (which was in turn named after the Benin Empire which had its seat of power in Benin City, modern-day Nigeria), since "Benin" was deemed politically neutral for all ethnic groups in the state, whereas "Dahomey" recalled the Fon-dominated Kingdom of Dahomey."

There is no date in history that has caused such havoc than the intentional date of events being Saint Vitus Day or Vidovdan, to the Serbs, being a emotional national day.
Some of Otto von Bismarck's quotes are darkly funny, others are chilling, ten years before his death in 1898, he said "One day the great European War will come out of some damned foolish thing in the Balkans".

Archduke Ferdinand assassination triggered W.W.1., you can find quote below:-

But for constitutions i start with the Vidovdan Constitution of 28 June 1921 in Belgrade:-
