The Cherokee Rose is a symbol of the pain and suffering of the "Trail Where They Cried". The mothers of the Cherokee were so grief stricken that the chiefs prayed for a sign....a sign to lift the spirits of the mothers and give them strength to care for thier children. From that day on, a beautiful new flower, a rose, grew wherever a mothers tear fell to the ground. The rose is white - symbolizing the mothers tears. The center is gold - symbolizing the gold taken from the Cherokee lands. Seven leaves on each stem - symbolizing the seven Cherokee clans that made the journey. (Bird, Plant, Deer, Blue, Wolf, Long Hair, Wild Potato) To this day, the Cherokee Rose grows and abounds along the route of the "Trail Of Tears".
