Folklore says the Forget-me-not’s name was given after a knight and his lady were strolling along a river bank when she spotted a beautiful unknown flower. The chivalrous knight bent down to collect a bunch, but the weight of his armour unbalanced him and he plunged into the river. As he was dragged beneath the surface he cried out “forget me not!” Henry IV adopted it has his emblem in 1398, and it is one of the symbols of freemasons, in order that they can identify one another secretly. Historically, Forget-me-nots were worn by lovers to remember to each while they were apart.
