Proteas seem otherworldly in some ways. Named after the Greek mythological sea god Proteus, who herded seals for Poseidon and could assume many different shapes at will, when represented against a black background, they seem almost like exotic sea creatures. According to botanists, protea are among the oldest flowers on the earth, known to exist in prehistoric times. Today, they have come to symbolize diversity and courage.
