The daffodil

The daffodil (Narcissus pseudonarcissus) is one of our most popular Easter flowers and a beautiful sign of spring. In the language of flowers, the daffodil has two meanings. It can mean "I love but not you", but it can also mean "my pride".
The family name Narcissus is said to come from the Greek youth Narcissus. (In Norwegian often called Narkissos). After rejecting several young women, he was condemned to love his own reflection. The impossible love caused Narcissus to fade away and soon it sprouted at the place where he died. The flower was named Narcissus.
