Natives of Qeshm Island (Gheshm) in South of Iran, clad in traditional attire, stage a regional performance to celebrate their new fishery year (a celebration for the beginning of the fishing season), called Nowruz-e Sayyad, July 19, 2019.

In this ceremony, the villagers wear new clothes and paint their animals with a red mud called Gelak and take them to the sea. On this day, the indigenous women receive guests with cooked pastries made from dates called Ranginak. The locals would not go fishing or eat fish or other seafood on this day and believe that all fish are free and should reproduce.

Qeshm Island, formerly known as Kishm, is an Iranian island in the Strait of Hormuz in Khuzestan Province, separated from the mainland by the Clarence Strait/Khuran in the Persian Gulf. It is the largest island in Iran.
