Padauk: Thingyan Myanmar Water Festival

Padauk (Pterocarpus macrocarpus)

The golden fragrant flowers of Padauk are also considered as the national flower of Myanmar. While the tree symbolizes strength, the flower represents youth, love and romance with its fragrant scent.
The seasonal padauk flowers bloom annually around Thingyan (April) and is considered one of the national symbols of Myanmar (formerly Burma).

The Padauk ( Pterocarpus Indicus ) blossoms in tiny fragrant yellow-gold flowers after the first showers in April, coinciding with the Myanmar New Year festival
