The language of flowers

Floriography ( language of flowers) is a means of cryptological communication through the use or arrangement of flowers. Meaning has been attributed to flowers for thousands of years, and some form of floriography has been practiced in traditional cultures throughout Europe, Asia, and Africa.

Well, it’s a remembrance flower mainly, as it’s used to remember the soldiers fallen and who fought in War. Though in general, it represents restful sleep, recovery, consolation, and peace in death.
