project ..... Commonly widespread in the Pacific islands, the hibiscus flower has been the symbol of the state of Hawaii since 1923. It is tradition to donate it in garlands to national authorities and tourists as a sign of hospitable welcome and, according to an ancient popular belief, incites to seize the opportunities. Hawaiian women wear this typical flower in the hair behind the left ear, to show their status as singles, or behind the right, if engaged, or behind both ears, when they would like a new love even if they are already accompanied.
In China, the hibiscus tree ('Hibiscus rosa-sinensis') embodies wealth and fame, while the delicate flower represents the unmarried girl. In South Korea, where the hibiscus flower ('Hibiscus syriacus', 'Mugunghwa') is the national emblem, it identifies immortality, despite its delicacy, perpetual love in marriages and military invincibility in war. In Hindu worship, it is offered to the goddess Kali and Ganesha. Introduced on the Malay Peninsula in the 12th century, the Chinese hibiscus ('Bunga Raya', 'flower of the party') is the symbol of the nation (since 1960), coined and printed on coins and banknotes which, with red petals, represents the life, the courage and rapid growth of the country #opportunity #life #courage
