The patriotic symbols are emblems that represent a nation, most of the countries have adopted several emblems or patriotic symbols as it is the case of a flag, a shield, a bird, an animal, a tree or a flower. This article will talk about one of the patriotic symbols of the United States, it is about The national flower of USA which is discussed in depth below.
The national flower of USA was established when in 1985 the Senate of this country sent a petition to the President of the Republic to decree La Rosa as a floral symbol of the country. A year later in 1986 President Ronald Reagan signed the decree in which the garden rose was proclaimed as the official national symbol, this act was carried out in the grounds of the Rose Garden white garden.
The resolution signed by President Ronald Reagan begins with a text that literally reads:
“Americans have always loved the flowers with which God decorates our land. More often than any other flower, we hold the rose dear as the symbol of life and love and devotion, of beauty and eternity. For the love of man and woman, for the love of mankind and God, for the love of country, Americans who would speak the language of the heart do so with a rose”
This confirms the great significance of this beautiful flower for Americans, because in a few words, the rose is considered as the flower of life, represented all the wonders it has.
The rose named in the resolution is found in most of the North American territory and since ancient times it has been used for ornamental purposes in houses as well as in ceremonies of great importance. Some anthropological records reveal that the rose has been grown in American gardens by age and age, it is more said that the first president of the United States George Washington used to plant roses of different varieties with his mother.
As a curious fact the white house where the president of the United States lives, has an extensive garden covered with beautiful roses in different varieties and colors thus honoring the National flower of USA.
