In the language of flowers, the forget-me-not is especially rich in meaning and associations. A lasting symbol of remembrance, faithfulness and undying love, its descriptive name was first coined by the Germans, and its earliest myths originated in Germany and surrounding countries. One recounts the story of two lovers walking along the Danube River. Seeing the bright blue blossoms along the bank, the man retrieved the flowers and gave them to the lady, just as he was swept away by the river, begging her not to forget him as he perished. Another German legend holds that God had finished naming all the plants when a tiny as-yet-unnamed one cried out, ‘Forget me not, O Lord!’ to which God replied, ‘That shall be your name’.
