This year, the Nowruz spirit is more vital than ever, United Nations Secretary-General said in his message on the occasion of the International Day of Nowruz, 21 March 2021.

Iran PressAmerica: Dear friends,

Each year, Nowruz marks a new beginning.

Last year, the Nowruz celebration coincided with the early days of an unprecedented and devastating global pandemic.

This year, the Nowruz spirit is more vital than ever.

Solidarity between communities and generations is more crucial than ever.

Today, we can start to see light at the end of the tunnel.

As the world comes together to defeat COVID-19, Nowruz serves as an inspiration to recover and rebuild in a more just and durable way, in harmony with nature.

I offer my best wishes to everyone marking Nowruz. 

May this day advance happiness, health, and harmony to all.

Nowruz, the first day of the solar year and also the first day of spring, Farvardin (March 21), is one of the oldest celebrations in Persian tradition. Nowruz, as an old and ancient celebration, is the beginning of the re-growth of nature, the growth, and the rebirth of gardens and orchards.
