The most beautiful symbol of Cuba

One of the most beautiful symbols of Cuba is its national flower: "la mariposa" (the butterfly). Cuban women decorated their hair with it and used it to hide messages in the struggle for independence. Its whiteness means the pureness of our ideals. 
This picture was taken in a mountain of Mayari, on the east of Holguin, Cuba. Is it not true that is it beautiful?
