    National Flower: Mahagony Flower

    The Mahogany flower was declared the National Flower on July 16, 1957, by decree 2944, issued by the Héctor Bienvenido Trujillo Molina government. The flower is from the mahogany tree, Swietenia mahogani, considered to be native, and one of the most prized in the world for the quality of its wood.

    The mahogany originates from the semi-wet forests of the Antilles and Central America. From the moment they touched the Antillean soil of the old Hispaniola, Christopher Columbus and the artisans accompanying him used this wood in churches, palaces and houses.

    The small flowers were featured in the print of the paper money of 1957. They bloom in copious plateaus from April to June in delicate yellow and white.
