The “Red Anemone Coronaria” Is The National Flower Of Israel

The bright red anemones (“the calanit”) that cover the country’s southern fields each spring have become Israel’s national flower following the 2013 online election campaign held by the Society for the Protection of Nature (SPNI) and Ynet. Achieving 28 percent of the vote, the calanit won first place ahead of the rakefet (cyclamen) and the purple iris, which scored 23% and 12% of the votes in second and third place. The project to elect a national flower occurred in honor of SPNI’s 60th anniversary and marked 48 years since the organization launched its campaign to preserve Israel’s wildflowers.
