Did you know that primitive peoples already wore crowns of flowers out of superstition or to take advantage of the medicinal properties of flowers? Flower wreaths were then very fashionable during the Middle Ages, when they were not intended for religious practice, but were only appreciated for their aesthetics as well as their delicious smell. However, they sometimes had a hidden meaning: if after a proposal the young woman adorned her head with a wreath of daisies, it implied that she wanted to take time to think before committing herself, but conversely if she wore a wreath of roses, it revealed that she accepted the proposal. Finally, flower wreaths were very popular in the 1960s, a hippie and revolutionary period that led to student revolts and May 68, the Prague Spring, the Woodstock Festival.
