The Floralia Blanket pays homage to the goddess Flora, the most ancient of goddesses in the roman religion. The goddess of flowers and vegetation, Flora was a symbol of fertility and the protector of gardens & fields.
To celebrate Flora, the ancient romans held a six day festival in her honour between April 28th and May 3rd. Also known as the ‘Games of Flora’, festival goers would take part in a range of activities including theatrical performances and circus events and, instead of wearing their customary white robes, they would dress in colourful garments.
