Martisor ( Romanian pronunciation : martsiʃor is a old Romanian celebration at the beginning of spring , on March the 1-st . Simbolically , it is correlated to women and to fertility as a means of life and continuity . The tradition is authentic in Romania , Moldova and all territories . The name Martisor is the diminutive of mart , the old name for March ( Martie , in modern Romanian ) , and thus literally means '' little March '' . It is alsa the folk name for this month . Martisor , martigus are all names for the red and white string from which a small decoration is tied , and which is offered by people on the 1-st day of March . It is a symbol of the coming spring . In modern times , and especially in urban areas , the Martisor lost most of its talisman properties and became more of a symbol of friendship or love , appreciation and respect .
Red is the colour of fire , blood , and a symbol of life , associated whit the passion of women . Meanwhile , white is the color of snow , clouds and wisdom of men . In this interpretation , the thread of a Martisor represents the union of the feminine and masculine principles , the vital forces which give birth to the eternal cycle of the nature .
