Pagumen Facts

Facts about Pagumen

We chose our company name “Pagumen”, from the 13th month of Ethiopia’s ancient calendar. The thirteen months Ethiopian calendar is one of the many unique ancient heritages Ethiopia has contributed to the World. Pagumen is a month with five or six days depending on whether the year is a leap year or not. Ethiopian Orthodox church scholars who have studied the ancient book of Henoch, which also deals with astronomy, claim this month has a duration of 7 days once every 600 years. Pagumen is succeeded by the Ethiopian New Year, a time when the rains are ending and the sun starts to shine in the blue sky. It is from the color of the sun that Pagumen also picked its brand color. During these days, the meadows are covered with an explosion of yellow daisies. This flower is also known as “Enqutatash” which means “gift of jewelry”; reminding us of the gifts given to Queen of Sheba upon her return after visiting King Solomon of Israel, 3000 years ago. The day marking the Ethiopian New Year, Enqutatash, is also named after this spring flower which marks a new beginning. During this period, crops mature, the landscape is astonishing to see and the delightful birds’ songs seem to be welcoming the sunny season. Children sing melodious songs and people celebrate festivities with great hope for the New Year. We are proud to introduce to you the untold history and the rich multicultural heritages of Ethiopia. Pagumen is therefore created to narrate Ethiopia. With Pagumen, Ethiopia truly narrated.
