Chrysanthemum Mandala Koa Charm
We call this the chrysanthemum mandala because of the perfection of the flower unfolding, and the symbolism of optimism and joy! To the Chinese, the chrysanthemum represents rest and ease. To the Japanese, it is a sign of long life and happiness. In the Victorian language of flowers, it means cheerfulness and optimism.
