Zuwarah Officially Adds Tifinagh To Street Signs And Billboards

Zuwarah, March 31, 2018

Tifinagh, the oldest traditional writing system of the Amazigh people of North Africa continues to expand across North Africa.

It took a long time but, it’s official, now drive through parts of Zuwarah (ⵜⴰⵎⵓⵔⵜ ⵏ ⵡⴰⵜ ⵡⵉⵍⵍⵓⵍ Tamurt n Wat Willul), in northwestern Libya, and you may be surprised that you’ll find streets name signs in Tamazight Language written in Tifinagh alphabet.

It’s been a long time coming, but it seems increasing demand for implementation of Tamazight’s official status in recent past years by the Libyan people has finally kicked some bigwigs into action.

This project aimed to revitalize Tifinagh and changes will also include cities/towns names, and tourism destinations, including historic and natural sites across Zuwarah and entire Libya in future.
