- Staying graceful under pressure, especially in challenging situations
- Drawing upon inner strength to succeed
The source of the name of Dahlia is highly contested.

Symbolism of the Dahlia Flower
The Victorians used the Dahlia to signify a lasting bond and commitment between two people, but modern flower lovers can also buy a potted plant as a celebration of joining a new religion or trying a new healthy habit. Dahlia is often considered a birth flower for August, but some traditions use it as a November birth flower instead. It’s the national flower of Mexico because that it’s native habitat. Some cultures use it to represent diversity since each petal fits seamlessly into the whole head.
