Vietnam Lotus. The elegance of the lotus is often cited in the Vietnamese folk songs and poems. To the Vietnamese, lotus is known as an exquisite flower, symbolizes the purity, serenity, commitment and optimism of the future as it is the flower which grows in muddy water and rises above the surface to bloom with remarkable beauty. The lotus symbolizes the purity of heart and mind. And just like the lotus, Vietnam has a strong affinity with the water. The scent of the flower is very fragrant. Lotus flowers in Vietnam are very large and bloom only one time a year. Asia Visions was very fortunate to get this image as the last two years because of storms in the region the Lotus flower population has depleted.
