The snowdrop symbolises purity and hope in the language of flowers.
A legend about the origin of the snowdrop ....
When God made all things on the Earth, He asked the snow to go to the flowers and get a little color from them. One by one the flowers refused. Then, very sad, she asked a snowdrop to give her a little of its colour and the snowdrop accepted.
As a reward, the snow lets her bloom first whenever spring shows.
