Norooz Banners in Streets of Irvine, California

By Hossein Hosseini, NIPOC


For the first time ever, the City of Irvine, California will be putting up 50 Norooz banners on Culver Drive, a major throughway, between 5 and 405 freeways from March 16 until April 2 to commemorate Persian New Year. This success was the result of the hard work of selfless Iranian Americans in Orange County including Mariam Khosravani, an Irvine City Commissioner and a community leader, Network of Iranian American Professionals of Orange County (NIPOC), and our community artist Mr. Saeed Danosian who designed the banners. Funding was provided by the newly formed PARSA Community Foundation.



One of the banners gives a glimpse of Haft Seen, the traditional Norooz display, while the other cites ancient Persian values of Good Thoughts, Good Words, Good Deeds. We hope Irvine paves the way for many more cities to embrace and enjoy Norooz.


We ask our members and friends to thanks and contribute to PARSA Foundation here, and follow up with an email to indicating that your contribution is designated to this cause.
