Chrysanthemum 菊 ...



It was a surprise to find the
cultural significance and symbolism
of the Chrysanthemum flower
...
In Europe, Chrysanthemum are a symbolic of death,
In China, Chrysanthemum is a symbolic of lamentation or grief,
In the US, it is regarded as cheerful and positive,
Yet some other countries, it represents honesty, 
In Australia, it is given to mothers on mother's day,
The Supreme Order of the Chrysanthemum is a Japanese honor awarded by the emperor.
(all from the web, apologies if it is incorrect)

...
I am confused 
...
What is the meaning of Chrysanthemum flower to you ?
