World No Tobacco Day is observed around the world each year on May 31. The purpose of this day is to encourage a 24-hour period of abstinence from all forms of tobacco consumption across the globe. The day is further intended to draw global attention to the widespread prevalence of tobacco use and to negative health effects, which currently lead to 5.4 million deaths worldwide annually.

If you see an ashtray holding flowers instead of tobacco products, it signifies World No Tobacco Day.
