Forget-Me-Not Flower Symbolism

The flower symbolism associated with the forget-me-not is true love and memories. In 15th century Germany, it was supposed that the wearers of the flower would not be forgotten by their lovers. In a medieval legend, a knight and his lady were walking along the side of a river. He picked a posy of flowers, but because of the weight of his armour he fell into the river. As he was drowning he threw the posy to his loved one and shouted “Forget-me-not”. It is also told in pious legend that the Christ child was sitting on Mary’s lap one day and said that he wished that future generations could see them. He touched her eyes and then waved his hand over the ground and blue forget-me-nots appeared – ’Livingartsoriginal.com

    It is a beautiful and heat touching image Robin ~ with a lovely write up to accompany ~ I particularly like the version of the Christ Child sitting on Mary’s lap ~ so beautifully relevant as the day of His birth approaches.
