The Tulip flower is the national flower of Iran and Turkey. The European name for the flower is a misuse of the persian word for turban, a mistake probably originating in the common Turkish custom of wearing flowers in the folds of the turban. Alternatively, the misuse may have arisen because this eastern flower, when not yet in full bloom, resembles a turban.
