The Common Rose Butterfly is medium-sized and mainly found in forests, occasionally feeding on nectar of flowers in parks and gardens on the forest edge. With a bright red body, and wings that are black with contrasting red and white patterns, the butterfly greatly reflects Singapore’s national flag, reminiscing the five stars and crescent moon.

The Vanda Miss Joaquim was selected from among 40 flowers as Singapore’s national flower, making Singapore the only country to have a hybrid as her national flower. Among the several varieties of Vanda Miss Joaquim, the variety “Agnes” was chosen particularly for its vibrant colours, hardiness and its ability to bloom throughout the year – qualities which reflect the Singapore spirit.
