The large central sunflower represents Kansas - for Topeka, Kansas - where the club's co-founders, resided. Kansas is also, of course, the heart of the USA. To the right of the sunflower is the rose , possibly the most popular floral motif of all - the symbol of beauty, the queen of flowers. The rose also represents England (the home to me, the designer, Glen). It is also the emblem of many US states and a favorite flower the world over.To the left of the sunflower is the poppy complete with bud - symbolizing peace, renewal and growth. A sprig of wattle blossom completes the panel to represent Australia. The smaller panels in the design depict rosemary , a symbol of remembrance for absent friends, those departed, those we loved and those who will be lost in the future.
