Mimosa, the iconic floral symbol of International Women’s Day in Italy

Incredibly, cheerful and lively. These yellow flowers have, without any doubt, become the floral symbol of International Women’s Day in Italy, which is celebrated on March 8th. Originally from Australia, this plant arrived in the Old Continent in the early tenth century, finding an ideal climate to develop and grow.


One of the peculiarities of this plant is the fact that, towards the end of winter, its branches bloom, offering a delicate straw yellow color that, almost instantly, breaks the typical grayness of the cold season. Considered a sort of ambassador for the arrival of spring, mimosa has become the symbol of International Women’s Day. In fact, it is now a well-established habit to give a sprig of mimosa on March 8, on the occasion of Women’s Day in Italy.
