Through an experimental approach, these drawings depict a very common flower found in different countries of the Mediterranean. The caper plant flower, also called the Flinders rose. Such flower can symbolise Malta quite well and its solidarity with other countries in the Mediterranean. This plant adjusts well to the hot and dry Mediterranean climate, manages to grow in poor soils, on rock surfaces, and in abandoned surroundings. Despite all the challenges of its environment, it manages to survive and produce beautiful and unique large white flowers. The nature of such plant personifies strength and the need and persistence to live against all the odds.
