The Labor Day observed on 1st May in France is actually the amalgam of several holidays established in the 19th century to celebrate workers (the proletariat). In 1889, in honour of the centennial of the French Revolution, 1st May became associated with labour's fight to obtain an eight-hour workday and in early 20th century Paris in became traditional for seamstresses to three sprigs of lily of the valley to their workers.
