In European culture, the sweet violet is probably best known as a symbol of humility, modesty, and hidden love. Such symbolic meanings are mainly linked to the low growth of the flower, which bends its fading flowers to the ground and hides them shyly among the green foliage. But the violet has other, almost diametrically opposite symbolic meanings. The tiny flower is also a symbol of courage, perseverance, and resilience, a flower that Napoleon Bonaparte chose as his emblem because violets were the favorite flower of his wife, Empress Josephine. They have been celebrated by many poets and writers, painted by masters of floral still-life painting, and have also been a prized fashion accessory and an important decorative motif in arts and crafts. Even today, a bouquet of these fragrant flowers is often an expression of attention and affection that is still a little shy of the right words.
