%y The year as a decimal number without a century (range 00 to 99). (Calculated from tm_year) %Y The year as a decimal number including the century. (Calculated from tm_year)
man strftime (osx)
%Y is replaced by the year with century as a decimal number. %y is replaced by the year without century as a decimal number (00-99).
