There is a legend from the Middle Ages about a knight and his lady who were walking near a river. He was picking flowers for her and wearing heavy armor when he accidentally fell in the river. Before he sunk below the water, he threw the flowers to her, shouting, "Forget me not!" Lovers wore Forget-Me-Nots in 15th century Germany to remember each other when they were apart. Since these times, the flower has been associated with romance, faithfulness, and everlasting love.
