The story goes that a prince name Farhad was love struck by a maiden named Shirin. When Farhad learned that Shirin had been killed, he was so overcome with gried that he killed himself – riding his horse over the edge of a cliff. It is said that a scarlet tulip sprang up from each droplet of his blood, giving red tulip the meaning ‘perfect love’. Interesting and sad but also beautiful at the same time.
