Iceland botanical

Today we have wrapped with a beautiful botanical look depicting the Mountain Avens (Dryad Octopetala), an arctic flowering plant in the family Rosaceae. Why this flower on this day? Because it’s the Icelandic National Day which commemorates the foundation of The Republic of Iceland on 17 June 1944 and its independence from Danish Rule. The beautiful Mountain Avens is Iceland’s national flower.
