The number of countries in the world approved by Japan is 196, including Japan. The national flower or tree is a flower or tree that has been approved by the government of each country. The list also includes national flowers and trees that are equivalent to the national flower or tree, such as long-established customs of the country or those that have come to symbolize the country because they are loved by its people. In addition, we have also included those of countries that have not established diplomatic relations with Japan. In the end, there are 156 national flowers in the "National Flowers of the World, Sometimes National Trees" (renamed from "National Flowers of the World").
We have been calling our web site "National Flowers of the World," but we would like to respond to the following two points that you have pointed out.
Q1. I checked and found that other flowers are the national flowers of the world.
Q2: Some countries have a tree instead of the national flower.
A1. The national flowers in the Kagiken Hana Zukan are based on "National Flowers of the World by Google.
Please note that the national flower may vary depending on the literature and data. In the Kagiken Hana Zukan, only flowers that have been recognized as the national flower or tree,
or those that have been selected for equivalent reasons, are included.
In addition, since we also include a small number of national trees, we have changed the name of "National Flowers of the World" to "National Flowers and Sometimes National Trees
of the World".
A2: Canada, for example, does not have an official national flower, but only a national tree. Therefore, the national flower is not included, but the national tree, the sugar maple, is.
