Today marks the first ever World Portuguese Language Day

The occasion will be commemorated with an online ceremony and a concert in which two dozen Portuguese-speaking personalities from the worlds of politics, arts, music and sports will take part.

The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) made the date official last year, but it has been unofficially celebrated by the Community of Speaking Countries Portuguese (CPLP) since it was instituted on May 5th 2009.
