Name: Loftiness Ala (March 1 – March 19, 2017)
Placement: 19th
Element: Earth (“The last six months are the element of dust…”)
Design: This month is the month of Fasting. Each of the nineteen days are marked by two tones representing the moment of sundown, when Baha’is may break the fast. The two-toned breaks advance along the month, in the same way as sundown becomes later and later, in the northern hemisphere.
Color: The 19 days are two-toned.
