History of Sweet Violets
In ancient Greece, it was said that the violets were born of the blood of Attis, when in an act of madness he castrated himself under a pine.
In ancient Rome, after the gods had created the Winter, they blew the snow apart and the grass began to be born, the waters of the streams to run and the sun to rise among the clouds. Before the show the gods began to weep with joy and these tears fell on the earth, sprouting from them the violets, hence they are also called as "tears of the gods".
In the Middle Ages, in southern Germany, it was customary to tie the first violet found on a mast and dance around it to welcome this season.
In the Christian tradition violet is also present and it is said that Saint Bernard called it "the flower of humility", being adopted as a symbol of the Virgin Mary as the supreme representation of humility on Earth.
When Emperor Napoleon was banished to the island of Elba, he promised his followers that he would return together with the violets next spring. From that moment the violet was the emblem of the Bonapartists and the password of those who wished their return. They took bouquets of violets in his honor, accessories of all kinds were created with violets and the toast was popularized: "For our captain Violeta and for his return in Spring".
