Turkey Changed its Name to 'Turkiye'

 

Turkiye

"Turkiye is the best way to express and represent the culture, civilization and values ​​of the Turkish people," said the President Erdogan.

Internationally, Turkiye will henceforth be known as 'Turkey'. Turkey's name has been changed. The UN has adopted the name in response to Turkiye's request.

Earlier it was known as ‘Turkey’ in the world. Similar changes will now be made in other international organizations. 

Last year, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan launched a campaign to rename the country "Turkiye" as part of a new introduction to Turkey.

"Turkiye is the best word to represent the culture, civilization and values ​​of the Turkish people," Erdogan said in December. Most people in the country already know their country as Turkiye.

The English name 'Turkey' is widely used in the international arena and also within the country. Ever since President Erdogan announced the name change last year, the state media has been using the term TRT in Turkiye.

The word ‘turkey’ is the name of a bird associated with Christmas, the English New Year, and Thanksgiving Day. Also, one of the meanings of the word 'turkey' in the Cambridge dictionary is - 'that thing fails miserably' or 'stupid person'. 

This is the reason for changing the name of the country.
