May 4 is celebrated as International Firefighters Day. The special day is marked to honor firefighting experts who have lost their lives in the line of duty.
On May 4, people wear a symbolic badge made of red and blue ribbons to express their gratitude to all martyred firefighters. For those who don’t know, red and blue are the main elements of a firefighter’s job because red denotes fire and blue symbolizes water.
