One of my favourite flowers is known by many names, e.g. Centaurea Cyanus, Cornflower, Common Cornflower, Bachelor’s Button, Bluebottle, Boutonniere flower or Hurtsickle.

The flower is also precious to me as it is the floral emblem for Östergötland, a province in Sweden where I was born. The Swedish name for Cornflower is Blåklint.
