Every Quebecer recognises the importance of the Fleurdelisé (Fleur de Lys), the provincial flag. The Fleur de Lys, literaly translated as : The Lily Flower, became the symbol for Quebec and its population, a sign of belonging to a francophone culture in America. This symboly is, however, slightly misguided. It is not actually a lily flower, but and iris! What poor botanist is to blame for this mistake? Is it even really a mistake?
Even if the language of flowers has been used in many cultures, from Europe to East Asia, it’s the extensive victorian symbolism that captures the attention of many around the world to this day. Learning the language of flowers was considered a respectable hobby, in the same vein as drawing or cross-stitching. It was used to send subtle message that could not be said out loud.
