REVOLUTION! – Flowers in Spring
A confusing title – but aren’t the days of a revolution confusing and what does this have to do with flowers?
Flowers have been a good advertising medium for the message of a revolution for centuries in their man-made symbolism.
More recent examples are „the Arab Spring“ – here one could not agree on a single flower but wanted to point out the desires for change that spread across several states through the massive symbolism of spring.
Most flowers are given a combative force, which is often used for political purposes. Consider the “Red Gilly – flower“, the „Blue Cornflower“ or the „Edelweiss“.
Who doesn’t know the pictures of election events where people distribute flowers to other people? Who is asking the question, what is the symbolism behind it?
As an example, the “Red Gilly – flower“ is mentioned here. In the French Revolution a symbol of the resistance of the nobles and today a symbol of resistance for – ?
Sometimes tulips are also distributed, remembering the uprising in Kyrgyzstan in 2005?
Flowers are not a pretty accessory, flowers trigger emotions, stand for tolerance, nobleness, bravery, love of home, wealth, fidelity, love, purity, innocence, peace, freedom and much more.
„We will throw roses instead of bullets at our enemies“ (Swiad Gamsachurdia, First Democratic President, Georgia in 1992).
Now we are in the midst of a global shift that is changing many areas of our daily lives – innovations that we encounter with resilience.
Which „Symbol“ stands for the revolutions currently occupying us, do we find them in the symbolism of flora, or do we use digitally created symbols.
(Elisabeth Rass, 2019)
