YOU ARE CORDIALLY INVITED! To the 45th Celebration of Rhode Island Day of Portugal, and RI Day of Portugal

About this event

YOU ARE CORDIALLY INVITED!

This year marks the 45th Celebration of Rhode Island Day of Portugal, and RI Day of Portugal along with the Portuguese Discovery Monument Foundation, is hosting for the 2nd time, in the City of Newport, a flag raising ceremony.

Every year, RI Day of Portugal hosts a flag raising in various cities and towns where a vast Portuguese community lives, works, and serves the week leading to our festival event. Honoring the Portuguese Flag alongside the American Flag is a representation and official recognition of the Portuguese communities’ presence and importance in the State of Rhode Island.

The flag represents the entire history of its people, beliefs, struggles, and hopes. It is one of the most comprehensive universal symbols, and to continue the traditions of flag raising, we request your presence at the Opening Flag Raising Ceremony.
