    KWF leads the celebration with the theme “Wika ng Kasaysayan, Kasaysayan ng Wika” and sub-theme "Ang mga Katutubong Wika sa Maka-Filipinong Bayanihan Kontra Pandemya."

    Republic Act 7104 states that KWF shall “[f]ormulate policies, plans, and programs to ensure the further development, enrichment, propagation, and preservation of Filipino and other Philippine languages.”

    The annual observance of 'Buwan ng Wika' is pursuant to Proclamation 1041, signed by former President Fidel V. Ramos, which declares the national celebration of the National Language Month every August. Additionally, former President Manuel Quezon, considered the Father of the National Language, was born on August 19, 1878.

    The objectives of 'Buwan ng Wika' celebration are the following:
    • Fully-implement Presidential Proclamation No. 1041
    • Encourage all government agencies and private sectors to be part of programs that raise language and civic consciousness
    • Show the importance of national language through the active participation in all activities related to 'Buwan ng Wika'

    KWF explains the poster

    The boat symbolizes the Filipino nation with the three men represent Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.

    Paddling means "BAYANIHAN" or doing something together especially in the time of pandemic or crisis.

    The paddle symbolizes the Filipino language as a medium to reach the goal in fast, secure and safe manner.
