Nowruz Piroz Bet 2018

March 21st has been proclaimed International Nowruz Day by the United Nations General Assembly, in its resolution A/RES/64/253 of 2010.

Inscribed in 2009 on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity as a cultural tradition observed by numerous peoples, Nowruz is an ancestral festivity marking the first day of spring and the renewal of nature. It promotes values of peace and solidarity between generations and within families as well as reconciliation and neighborliness, thus contributing to cultural diversity and friendship among peoples and different communities.
