The Weekly Photo Challenge theme this week is “Symbol.” According to The Meaning of Flowers website:

The water lily flower stands for perfect beauty.

The water lily is the first flower mentioned in world literature. In Asia, the flowering water lily, called the lotus, symbolizes absolute truth and purity. The bloom became associated with Buddha himself. The Hindus in India believe that, before its creation as we know it, the world was a golden lotus.
