Haft-Sin denoting ‘seven items beginning with the letter sin (S)’, is one of the components of the rituals of the New Year’s Day festival observed by Iranians.

Iran has unveiled a postage stamp exclusively published to commemorate the UN-recognized International Day of Nowruz.

The stamp was made public in the presence of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad during the first International Nowruz Celebrations in Tehran on Saturday.

Nowruz, meaning “a new day,” is an ancient Iranian tradition that has been celebrated around the globe for nearly three millenniums.

It honors the first day of spring as a new year and a brand new beginning on a merry, peaceful note. It is celebrated on the day of the vernal equinox, which normally lands on March 21

Happy Nowruz the only new year festival which gets celebrated at the same moment of time all over the world and has no connection to religion, nationality race, sex, or any other factor dividing humans, wish you the best,
