Across the World

In many countries, International Women’s Day is the equivalent of Mother’s Day which means that children are encouraged to give flowers and small gifts to their grandmothers and mothers. 

  • In Vietnam, it is customary for bosses and co-workers to send flowers to their female colleagues.
  • In Italy, women are given yellow mimosas.
  • In Russia, women are given roses or seasonal flowers such as snowdrops, tulips or daffodils.
  • In some countries, students also give flowers to their female teachers.

Flower giving is one of the traditional ways to recognize the achievements of women on this day. The origins of that tradition in the Western World date back to 8th March 1946 (a year after the end of World War II) when a group of Italian feminists chose the mimosa flower as the symbol of strength, sensibility and sensitivity.
