What is the National Flower?

In a number of countries, plants have been chosen as symbols to represent specific geographic areas. These are known as National Flowers

Lotus (Nelumbo Nucifera Gaertn) is the National Flower of India. 

The lotus was chosen as the national flower because it enjoyed a significant presence in ancient traditions, scriptures and mythology. The Bhagavad Gita considers it a metaphor for detachment: Just as the lotus remains untouched by the muddy waters in which it grows, human beings should rise above worldly attachments.
