In France, the 1 may is a significant date as it commemorates the Feast of the work. On this occasion, it is customary to offer a lily of the valley. A tradition that actually came from the other side of the Atlantic. Indeed, in 1886, a strike causing several deaths in Chicago and allows for the adoption of the eight-hour day. In France, it is the putting in place of the red triangle : eight hours work, eight of sleep and eight for recreation. Remember, the flower of the wild rose becomes the symbol but the marshal Pétain finally chosen to associate with lily of the valley.
In addition to the celebration of the work, the lily of the valley has also been chosen by royalty to celebrate the unions. Indeed, as pointed out by the magazine Vogue, on her marriage with prince Rainier III of Monaco in 1956, Grace Kelly had chosen to be accompanied by a bouquet of lily of the valley. Similarly, a few years later, this is Lady Diana, saying yes to prince Charles in 1981, wearing the white flower. Finally, in 2011, Kate Middleton had chosen to marry prince William with flowers in the form of clusters of small bells. But for what reason ? And just because the lily of the valley is a symbol of purity.

It should be noted that these three ladies were not the only ones to have chosen to unite with thrush. In fact, in 1957 the actress Audrey Hepburn, even if it was fiction, had sported a beautiful white dress and a bouquet of flowers of lily of the valley in the film Funny Face by Stanley Donen. For its part, the actress Claudia Schiffer had brought in a bouquet but also in the crown on the head when she married Matthew Vaughn on may 25, 2002.
