Flowers that represent strength.

In Washington, every March, the National Cherry Blossom Festival is held.
A festival in which it is celebrated that on March 27, 1912, the mayor of Tokyo, Yukio Ozaki, gave the United States more than 3,000 Japanese cherry trees, in an effort to sustain “the growing friendship between Mexico, the United States, and Japan, and also to celebrate the close and growing relationship between the two nations”, as documented by Wikipedia.

So, from the date they planted those cherry trees, they are the ones that, year after year, signal the arrival of spring in the North American country, giving a show in light pink and white tones around West Potomac Park.

We are aware that this does not mean anything with our topic today (strength), or well, almost nothing, but the truth is that those trees were not only a gesture of peace, but also a sign of resistance, because before the trees get there, there were a thousand failed attempts that made this occurrence seem like an impossible event. One of them, for example, was that the original 1910 gift of 2000 cherry trees had to be burned once it arrived in Washington, for only then it was discovered to be infested with pests and agricultural diseases.

So, if after 160 years the cherry trees gather visitors from all over the world (which they do), it may be that they just want to give a message. The message that their flowers continue to sprout and fly there as a show of strength when the conflicts between the two nations have sharpened, and as a peace pact, when the governments gather in dialogue.
