Sunflower fields face the sunrise in Buonconvento, Tuscany , Italy. The sunflower is also the national flower of Ukraine. The country is covered in fields of sunflowers due to the importation of the flower seeds from North America in the 1800s, Flower Power Daily reports. Likewise, Ukraine is also the world’s largest producer and exporter of sunflower seeds and sunflower oil. In a more symbolic sense, the flower represents warmth, strength, happiness, and hope.
