I just returned from my first trip to Ukraine. Since I'm loving the Tagetes flower I was wondering why it is omnipresent in Ukraines streets and flowerpots. My first assumption was that it is related to the Orange Revolution because of it's colour. But researching the internet asking some natives (mostly young people) did not result in an satisfying answer.
Why do Ukranians love this flower? Is there a historical, cultural or any other background for this?
