"If you're going to San Francisco,
Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair."
- San Francisco, song by Scott McKenzie, 1967

A flower crown, chaplet, or wreath is a "circular garland, usually woven of flowers, leaves, and foliage, that traditionally indicates honour or celebration."

Many children have made bracelets, necklaces, and crowns by tying the stems of small flowers together. These may be referred to as daisy chains. But the practice of making flower crowns has a long history.

Ancient Egyptians sewed flowers to cloth bands and tied them around the head. In ancient Greece, wreaths were awarded to Olympic athletes, poets, and public speakers. Ancient Roman politicians and victorious warriors wore wreaths of olive leaves as a mark of honor.

Today, flower crowns are most often worn by brides or others in the wedding party. Certain holidays or events such as the Coachella music festival also bring out wreath-wearers.

In some tropical countries, flower crowns or leis - necklaces of flowers - may be worn on formal occasions, for celebrations, or to welcome visitors. Flower wreaths are still a part of the Ukrainian national costume and are worn on festive occasions.
