Lotus Flower

Lotus is the national flower of India. In the Asian religions, no other plant figures so prominently as the Lotus. It is regarded as a sacred symbol by both the Buddhist and the Hindus and are basically used in religious offerings. It is native to Asia and flourishes in a wide range of climate from China to India. Lotus belongs to the water lily family. It features large pink and white petal flowers and large round leaf stalks rise above water.
When the petals of the flower fall, they are replaced by a flat-topped seed pod divided into compartments. In the north-eastern parts of India, these seeds are munched happily. In the eastern part of India the stems are picked. A postal stamp was issued to commemorate this flower by the Indian Postal Department.
