I chose a Daisy flower for two reasons: Daisies are a very resilient plant. They can grow and persevere in any soil or condition. Dorothy was a exactly like a daisy flower. Strong and not willing to wilt under pressure. And the second reason is that in almost all of her photos, she’s pictured wearing a flower pin. So I wanted to play off of this aspect of her. The stone in the center is an Amethyst. Purple is color of power and royalty. Dorothy was a powerhouse for Civil Rights and would never back down. Amethyst is also a stone of protection. And lastly a little silver butterfly sits on the petals of the flower. This butterfly is a symbol that represents endurance, change, hope, and life. Dorothy was all of this and so much more.
