    National Maritime Day is celebrated in several countries on different dates. 



    National Maritime Day is a commemorative date of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), which entered into force on November 16, 1994, having been ratified by Portugal on October 14, 1997.

    In 1998, the 16th of November was instituted by the Resolution of the Council of Ministers nº 83/1998, of the 10th of July, as the National Day of the Sea.

    The 16th of November is the National Day of the Sea. It is intended to mark this date, seeking to highlight the importance that the sea has for the history and identity of Portugal, as well as for the country's economy and development.
