The tulip

A Persian legend tells the origin of tulips, young Prince Farhad was madly in love with his maid, Shirin. One day he heard the news (false) that Shirin was dead, overwhelmed with grief Farhad saddled his horse, and went to the rocks to look for death. From many wounds caused by rocks, drops of Farhad’s blood spread on the ground, from every drop a purple tulip grew, the symbol of his love for Shirin. That is why in ancient Persia, the red tulip was a symbol of passionate love.
