Yellow Cactus Flower

The cactus plant, particularly the golden cactus blossom, is a mother emblem in Native American tribes and expresses unconditional maternal love. The cactus flower is associated with endurance in floral symbolism since the plant can withstand the weather and survive in extremely hot and arid situations. A mother’s supreme patience is symbolized by a yellow cactus flower as she provides unselfish, enduring love and protection to her child in all situations of life.

These maternal symbols are unique to the civilizations from which they originated, yet we see strange and uncanny (minor) commonalities that seem to reveal a universal kinship among human thought patterns about maternity and its symbolism.
