Lunar New Year, which marks the start of the Chinese lunar calendar, represents weeks of celebration with fireworks, parades, and private moments of housecleaning and preparation for the year ahead.
For more than a century, Wells Fargo has produced a unique calendar to celebrate the Lunar New Year with customers and team members. The calendar has been designed by various artists over the years.
The Wells Fargo Corporate Archives has a large collection of the bank’s Chinese-language calendars, dating back to the earliest-known calendar printed in 1912. The designs and styles have changed over time, but these calendars demonstrate Wells Fargo’s historic and continued commitment to diversity and inclusion.
