I Stand for Ukraine
The sunflower has been used as a symbol of peace in Ukraine once before. In June 1966, US, Russian and Ukrainian defense ministers planted sunflowers at Ukraine's Pervomaysk missile base in a ceremony to mark Ukraine giving up nuclear weapons.
The sunflower’s yellow color symbolizes vitality, intelligence, and happiness. The color yellow also traditionally symbolizes friendship.
Sunflowers also symbolize worship and faithfulness in various religions because of their resemblance to the sun, which is associated with spiritual knowledge and the desire to seek light and truth.
The Incas used sunflowers to symbolize the Sun God, and brought them to temples for worship. The priestesses also wore sunflowers on their garments and as crowns.

I took a respite from painting for the summer. Started this hummer in early spring and finally finished it today. I had some issues with finding and perfecting the proper flower for this beauty.
