The history of International Women’s Day dates back more than 100 years ago when it was first observed across Europe and US. But it wasn’t until March 8th, 1946, when the feminists in Italy choose the Mimosa flower (Flowering Acacia) as the symbol of strength and sensitivity for women’s day. 

Gifting Women’s Day Flowers has become a norm across the world. On this day, men and women alike express their appreciation and support to the women in their lives. Co-workers, friends, family members, etc. come forward and gift beautiful Flower Bouquets to the strong women around them.

Dried Mimosa

Mimosa is a symbolic flower associated with International Women’s Day. Although why the political party of Italy chose Mimosa is not clear, it may be because this flower’s color yellow symbolizes cheerfulness and strength. To this date, the practice of gifting Mimosa flowers to women is not just present in Italy but all around the world.
