I have it here in my garden and I want to share its beauty with you.
Origin: Mexico and Guatemala, introduced in Europe at the end of the XVI century. It is a bulbar plant with laminar distich leaves that appear after the flowers. These are bright red and lonely and their six elements are arranged in threes; three point upwards and three are joined at the base and hang.
The lis flower is related to a lot of legends and questions, it has been the symbol of several civilizations such as Egypt, Greece, Mexico, France… also the symbol of religions, political movements, cultural associations and national armies for over 20 years.
Today the lis flower represents not only the French monarchy and its old Canadian colonies, it also represents the Scouts, Schilieren, a municipality in Zurich and it also appears in military insignias throughout the world.
In New Orleans, after hurricane Katrina, this flower was adopted as a symbol of the reconstruction of the city and the homes.
From a spiritual and naturalistic point of view the lis flower symbolizes beauty and hope; it helps to take decisions and balances our vital energy.
