International Romani Language Day

5th November – International Romani Language Day/ 5-to Novèmbro – Maśkarthemutno Dives palal i Romani Ćhib

Every year on the 5th of November, Roma in Europe celebrate the International Romani Language Day.

Spoken throughout the world, Romani is the language of Roma, a language preserved and sent on from generation to generation over the centuries mainly in its oral form.

During the first Romani Congress in 1971, Romani was officially recognised as the language of Roma in Europe. This led to its inclusion in various international regulations, including Council of Europe’s European Charter for Regional and Minority Languages.

As a result of the consistent efforts of Roma intellectuals, Romani is today included in the teaching curriculum in several European countries. Undeniably, Romani language is a reminder of the common cultural heritage among the diverse Roma communities in Europe.

The Council of Europe supports the recognition of the Romani Language at European level, as well as its promotion within the educational systems, usage in speech and writing, in public and private life.
