The Zonta Rose

Zonta Rose

The beauty of a single yellow rose has been a favourite Zonta symbol for nearly 20 years.

A special yellow rose was created for Zonta International by Harkness Roses. It is featured in many civic and memorial gardens in Australia, including Pevensey Gardens and the McKellar Centre in Geelong

Zonta Rose Day, which coincides with International Women's Day on 8 March, is a day to reflect on the voluntary work done by Zontians empowering women worldwide.

This year, we invite you to celebrate Zonta Rose Day by making a donation to the Zonta International Rose Fund in honor of someone who has made an impact in your life. By honoring a family member, friend, colleague or mentor who has positively impacted your life with this donation, you will continue supporting projects and programs that help women achieve a life free of violence and empower them to overcome gender barriers that hinder their access to health, education and professional advancement.
