Day of Mother Tongue marked in Georgia

14.04.12 16:03

The Day of Mother Language is celebrated in Georgia today. The day is annually marked on April 14. The date dedicated to Mother Tongue was determined due to 1978 events.

In 1978 new constitution adopted by Georgian Soviet Socialistic Republic deprived Georgian language of state language status. Approximately 100 000 people assembled at the Rustaveli Avanue on April 14. Participants of the peaceful protest rally strongly demanded legitimacy of Georgian language as a mother tongue.

As a direct result of unanimous insist of Georgian nation, the government was obliged to make a compromising step as it was obvious Georgians would not take the event in silence. According to the 75th article of constitution, Georgian language was declared as state language.

Traditionally various citizens annually assemble at the monument of Mother Tongue to mark the date.
