Leontopodium alpinum, commonly called Edelweiss , is a well-known mountain flower, belonging to the Asteraceae (the daisy or sunflower family)

As a scarce, short-lived flower found in remote mountain areas, the plant has been used as a symbol for alpinism, for rugged beauty and purity associated with the Alps and Carpathians, and as a national symbol especially of Austria, Switzerland, Bulgaria and Romania. According to folk tradition, giving this flower to a loved one is a promise of dedication.
