The name “Zonta” is derived from the Sioux Indian word meaning honest and trustworthy. Zonta’s emblem is a composite of five Sioux symbols. Zonta was founded November 8, 1919, in Buffalo, New York.
Zonta has 29,000 members from 63 countries working together to improve the lives of women and children.
The Zonta flower is a yellow rose and March 8th is Zonta Rose Day. All Zontians worldwide are encouraged to commemorate Zonta Rose Day/International Women’s Day in whatever manner is appropriate in their countries and areas, using the symbol of the yellow rose.
Amelia Earhart was an early member of Zonta and each year we honor her with a special trip or event. See the Events page.
