The Minister of Culture for the Junta de Andalucía, Paulino Plata, has announced that 16 November will be celebrated as the Día del Flamenco, each year in Andalucia, Spain. That date was chosen as it was the 16 November 2010 when UNESCO added Flamenco to its Representative List of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, to be protected and preserved.
