IRAQ-NORUZ-FESTIVAL

Iraqi Kurds wave the Kurdish flags next to a bonfire to celebrate new year which marks the beginning of the Noruz spring festival in the northern city of Arbil, the capital of the autonomous Kurdistan region, on March 20, 2013. The Persian New Year is an ancient Zoroastrian tradition celebrated by Iranians and Kurds which coincides with the vernal (spring) equinox and is calculated by the solar calender.
