Can you share to us what is the name of the "National Flower" of your country? And what do you think your country had chosen it to be your national flower?

"Mugunghwa also known as the Rose of Sharon is the national flower of Korea.

Even before the country ever nominated this flower as a national heritage symbol, the people of Korea have always loved and enjoyed the fragrance and color of the Rose of Sharon.

The national flower in the Philippines is the Arabian Jasmine or what we call it here as "sampaguita". Derived from the word "sumpa kita" which means "I promise you". (NSYNC song suddenly played in my head :whistle: )

Because of its color where it symbolizes purity, humility and love, our national flower is used as a garland or necklace to special visitors, religious images and graduating students. Though some place it inside their cars because of its mild and sweet fragrance. It is an edible flower but they prominently used as an ornament.

Jamaica's National Flower is called the Lignum Vitae.

The name is Latin and means "Wood of Life." I think one of the reasons for adapting this particular tree is that it has numerous medicinal qualities as well as other uses.

In 1986, president Ronald Reagan signed the rose as our national flower, but no specific rose! Thus the White House Rose Garden!

Rose are nice flowers too and I like the colors red and peach which we had at home.

The national flower of Mexico is Dahlia pinnata, assigned in 1963. I have no idea why. In pre-Columbian times, the tubers were grown as a food crop by the Aztecs. Today, the flower petals are often used in salads. Dahlias grow wild in some of the country's mountainous areas.
