Edelweiss is a well-known European mountain flower, belonging to the sunflower family.The common name comes from German edel, meaning "noble",thus signifying "noble whiteness".
Leontopodium alpinum is grown in gardens for its interesting inflorescence and silver foliage.

The Edelweiss flower was the symbol of Wehrmacht and Waffen-SS Mountaineer, or mountain rangers, worn as a metal pin on the left side of the mountain cap, on the band of the service dress cap, and as a patch on the right sleeve. It is still the symbol of the Mountain division in the German army today.
