The Official Flower of International Women’s Day: The Mimosa Flower
Mimosa flowers were first associated with International Women’s Day in Italy.
In 1946, Italy’s first International Women’s Day event, Festa Della Donna, was organised by the political group UDI (Unione Donne Italiane, or Italian Women’s Union). The mission was to advocate for women’s equality. The mimosa was chosen as the symbol of this festival on March 8, 1946, by members of the UDI because it represents strength, sensibility, and sensitivity.
The reason they are the official flower is unknown, however seasonality and abundance at that time of year are thought to be factors. Mimosa blossoms are also commonly associated with happiness due to their yellow colour.
The tradition of offering a bouquet of mimosa flowers to ladies of all ages is still performed today, not just in Italy, but all across the world.
