May Day is celebrated in Bangladesh, Belgium, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Ghana, Gibraltar, Mexico, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, United Kingdom.

May Day festivals probably stem from the rites practiced in honour of Flora, the Roman goddess of flowers. Warmth and fertility, green grass, blooming trees and a profusion of flowers — the coming of spring signals an annual rejuvenation of nature, which is celebrated as May Day. It is celebrated as a festival for children marking the reappearance of flowers during the spring. It is traditionally greeted with dancing around a garlanded and beribboned pole, called a maypole, from which hang streamers held by the dancers. The most popular May Day celebration is International Workers' Day, and is called Labour Day. It was especially significant in the Soviet Union and other Communist countries when the May Day parade of armored tanks, rockets, and military personnel saluting the nations' leaders, was a much-publicized feature.
