Let’s start with the national flowers associated with the nations that make up the United Kingdom. In England the Tudor Rose is a symbol of everything English. We describe a typically English girl as an “English Rose” meaning that this flower is beautiful and typically English. Originally, the Tudor Rose was just a graphic design created by King Henry VII but it’s since grown to mean so much more.

Sticking with the UK, in Wales the Daffodil is an emblem. It’s the national flower of Wales probably because of its colouring: white over green, which echoes the ancient Welsh flag.

In the USA the Rose has been adopted as the national flower. As this is very similar to the national flower of England, is the rose being used to symbolise America’s origins as an English colony?
