A review on a relation between flowers and the war memorials shows strong and multi-dimensional integration.
Focusing on the establishment and the essential purpose that memorials serve, this paper reviews three twentieth-century social movements as case studies, which directly involved the public ground and the use of landscape ephemera, particularly flowers, in response to war: The WWI war shrine-, the WWI+II war-gardening, and Vietnam War-era “flower power” movement—one to mourn the loss of war, one to support the war, and one to protest the war. At the end the paper notes that recalling flowers in certain purposes may be an answer for the new generation of war memorial in the recent universal front.
