((Just a reminder
That this blog is for the ponytail male design of Portugal in Himaruya’s sketches, as you can read in the ‘about’ section.
I know I answered a couple of Lady Portugal ones out of magic anon because I thought it was a bit of fun, but now there are too many asks for her, and you should look for an askblog that is meant for her specifically.
I’m sorry, but I won’t be replying to questions meant for her.))
The 10th of June is a holiday in Portugal, known as Portugal Day, and it was chosen on the day of the death of Luís de Camões, who was an incredible and respected poet of the country, whose birth date is not known and that sadly died in the most absolute misery.
It was originally meant to be a regional holiday, chosen by the Republicans during the first years of the Portuguese Republic.
It only gained a bigger proportion when the Military Regime of Estado Novo took over the country, with a very nationalistic and propagandic purpose, having then been known as “Camões’ Day”, and “Race Day”.
From 1963 it was also turned into an homage to the Military Forces, as a symbol of war and colonial power.
The current meaning for it was adopted only in 1978, 4 years after the Portuguese dictatorship was overthrowned, having the new title of “Portugal’s, Camões’ and the Portuguese Community’s Day”.
