Carnation in myths and reality

Carnation in myths and reality, the first mention of carnation is found in the ancient Greek myth of Artemis - she met a shepherd in her hunting ground, who, by playing the flute, scared away the game in her hunting ground. At first, the goddess killed him from a bow, but then, regretting this act, she appealed to her father - the god of thunder Zeus, who turned the body into a flower, so since then the name of the carnation has been associated with the name of Zeus the Thunderer. In Christianity, this flower symbolized the suffering of Christ, crucified on the cross. In ancient Rome, it was a symbol of victory, so the legionnaires returning with victory from distant lands, the girls were met with bouquets of carnations. They could also weave them in their hair. There are 350 flower species that grow on all continents except Australia. In the East, according to legend, a carpet embroidered with carnations brings happiness to its owner, so this is a common theme in the Caucasus and the Middle East.
