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