Latin name Orchidaceae means roughly as “descended from God.” Orchid – flower of joy, born of the pieces of the first rainbow. That’s what New Zealand myth says about this. Long ago, when life on Earth was in its infancy, one ray of sunshine was very bored in the clouds, that ray thought – what if I try to break through the clouds, because there is something very interesting there. Without much thought, a ray tried – and that’s how a rainbow appeared in the sky.

The appearance of such a miracle in the sky, of course, could not go unnoticed and drew attention of the immortal spirits who flocked from all corners of the earth, climbed upon the rainbow and had fun, singing in unison. They sang in unison so that a rainbow could not stand such gravity and collapsed. It fell onto the ground, with sparkling in the sun shimmering multi-colored pieces. And each of the fragments in an instant turned into a beautiful orchid, which pleases us with its beauty to this day!
