Cape Verde

Usage notesEdit

In October 2013, the government requested that the country be known as Cabo Verde in every language, rather than by partial translations (Cape Verde, Kaap Verde, etc) as had previously been the case. Cabo Verde had already seen some use in English, but continues to be less common than Cape Verde.[1]
