The white Camelia

One of our favourite flowers is the white camelia. It reminds us a bit of a rose, but has a more flat blossom. The camelia itself is from the purest white, and doesn't have an odour.

For us the camelia is also a symbol of peace and friendship.

It originates in eastern Asia, and has become more famous in Europe in the 19th century.
Because of its purity and the fact that it does not have a smell, it was also the favourite flower of Gabrielle Chanel, because when she was wearing one it did not interfere with the perfume she was wearing. You can still find the camelia as the caracteristic symbol of chanel, used in jewelry, bags, clothes etc.
