Romania : The Ministry of Foreign Affairs welcomes the celebration of Martisor, a tradition registered in the Immaterial Cultural Patrimony of Humanity.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is glad to mark the tradition of Martisor, whose origin is lost in immemorial times and whose cultural value has been recognized internationally. Part of the World Immaterial Patrimony, by enrolling in the UNESCO Representative List, under the title of Cultural Practices Associated to March 1, the Martisor feast represents an identity element of the traditional Romanian culture, fascinating with uniqueness and inventiveness.

With its roots in the Southeast European region, the custom of making, offering and wearing M?r?i?orul - an artifact that has seen a variety of creative forms over time - symbolizes the renewal of time and the rebirth of nature. From the silver pen, tied with red and silk white string, worn as a protector, to the unconventional contemporary variants, the legend and tradition of M?r?i?or continues to delight and enjoy generations of Romanians, being a living example of human creativity and spirit playfulness. On this day of the beginning of the spring, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs joins all those who mark the Martisor feast and contributes to the perpetuation of its specificity to future generations, transmitting all wishes for good, health and enjoyment.
