The hibiscus flower is significant to many countries and cultures. It is the national flower of Haiti, South Korea and Malaysia, and the state flower of Hawaii. Specifically, the red hibiscus is the flower of the Hindu goddess, Kali. 

In certain species of hibiscus, the flowers actually change color over time. 

The hibiscus also serves several other purposes. The flowers can be dried or candied and consumed as food. More popular is the making of hibiscus tea throughout various African countries.
