The national flower, the Chaconia (Warszewiczia coccinea (Vahl) Kl.), Called "Wild Poinsettia" or "Pride of Trinidad and Tobago" is a flaming red forest flower of the family Rubianceae. The title is in honor of the last Spanish Governor of Trinidad and Tobago, Don Jose Maria Chacon. This flower, known for its long sprays of magnificent vermillion, will be in bloom on every anniversary of our independence. As an indigenous flower that has been witnessed in our history. Therefore, it can be said to represent the immortality of life and continuity of our Nation.
