At the Nowruz reception table at the U.S. Embassy in Berlin, as presented by Damon Golriz, there were seven elements included: wheat, apples, eggs symbolizing the new beginning, candlelight symbolizing the struggle between light and darkness, a mirror symbolizing the reflection, and the garlic, symbolizing the healing process.

These elements symbolize the way Iranians look at the nature and get unified around the Nowruz. The traditional Nowruz table is called « Haft-sinat ».
