National Language day in Moldova – Limba Noastra

History Lesson

LIMBA-NOASTRA stands for the “Our tongue” or “Our language,” which named after the Moldova’s National Anthem. On 31 August, the day starts in Chisinau with Flowers all over the place near the monument called “Stefan cel Mare.” Everyone seems happy, everyone preparing for the festival to start. They are celebrating the day when the Popular front of Moldova (PFM) called the Great National Assembly in Chișinău. In the meeting, they put pressure on the Moldavian Soviet Socialist Republic Authorities to make and adopt a Language law, through which they claimed the Moldovan Language on 31 August 1989.

  • The Moldovan Language is written in the Latin Script which becomes the state language of the MSSR.
