United States National Flower - The Rose
On September 23, 1986, the House of Representatives passed a joint resolution naming the rose as the "national floral emblem" of the United States. The Senate had passed the resolution in 1985. The measure then went to President Ronald Reagan. He signed the resolution into law on October 7, 1986 in a ceremony at the White House Rose Garden.
Lawmakers did not name a specific rose. For this collection, I chose to draw the beautiful peace rose.
