Passion Flower (Passion of Christ Flower) by 


A beautiful, intricately complex passion flower up close.

Interestingly, the various parts of the flower have been used by some to symbolize things associated with Christ and His crucifixion:

-The pointed tips of the leaves were taken to represent the Holy Lance.-The tendrils represent the whips used in the flagellation of Christ.-The ten petals and sepals represent the ten faithful apostles (excluding St. Peter the denier and Judas Iscariot the betrayer).-The flower’s radial filaments, which can number more than a hundred and vary from flower to flower, represent the crown of thorns.-The chalice-shaped ovary with its receptacle represents a hammer or the Holy Grail-The 3 stigmas represent the 3 nails and the 5 anthers below them the 5 wounds (four by the nails and one by the lance).-The blue and white colors of many species’ flowers represent Heaven and Purity.
