The Flower came to Spain towards the end of the XVI century, enveloped in “a wooden arch”, as part of the delicate material of the First nature expedition financed by the Spanish Crown. It was soon greeted with religious exaltation. The Flower atzcalxochitl, the most beautiful, red flower, shaped like a cross, was baptised “The Flower of Santiago”, because of its resemblance to the Cross of the Knights of Santiago. The recovery, today, of the Jacobean Lily allows us to cast a new look upon its great beauty and symbolism, which are key first of all to the city of Santiago de Compostela, then to Galicia, and ultimately to the Jacobean cult as a whole. « less
