The Tudor Rose and Fleur de Lis are Paleo Hebrew symbols. The Tudor Rose of England is the Rose of Sharon, and the Fleur de Lis of Europe is the Lily of the Valleys. These two scripTURal flowers represent the people of ISHaRaAL, and have been carried down over the ages by their descendants from the time of King SHaLaME (Solomon). The Rose of Sharon is actually most likely hibiscus syriacus and not a rose. The Lily of the Valleys is most likely lilium candidum (the madonna lily).
Rose of Sharon and Lily of the Valleys Represent ISHaRaAL
The phrases "Rose of Sharon" and "Lily of the Valleys" primarily come from the 1611 KJV version of chapter two, verse one of the Song of SHaLaME (aka Solomon).
AV Ss 2:1 . I [am] the rose of Sharon, [and] the lily of the valleys.
Here SHaLaME's beloved who is a symbol of the assembly/ISHaRaAL/the Perfect Bride/Virgin/Maiden/Kings and Queens/True Royalty, with IEUESHUO being the Lover, declares herself first as the "Rose of Sharon". This is the "CHaBaTSaLaT (hibiscus of) E (the) SHaRUN (Sharon)" in Ancient Hebrew, or "Chavatzelet Ha Sharon" in Modern Jewish Hebrew. This flower is most likely a hibiscus syriacus (red heart variety). Other possibilities include the cistus ladanifer (sun rockrose) or hibiscus trionum (flower for an hour), however these may just be natural imitators of the hibiscus syriacus, as there are imitators of the Bride of MaSHICH (the Catholic Church and her daughters).
Secondly the beloved calls herself the "Lily of the Valleys", which in Ancient Hebrew is the SHUSHaNaT (lily of) E (the) OMaQIM (valleys). This flower is most likely lilium candidum (madonna lily).
All of these flowers are strikingly beautiful.
In the beginning of the "Zohar" it says: "What is the rose: It is the Assemblage of Israel, the Community of Israel."
It is generally accepted that SHaLaME wrote the Song of SHaLaME, hence this book dates to Paleo Hebrew times. Paleo Hebrew times is defined in this article as being when the Paleo Hebrew script was predominantly in use by the Hebrew people, as opposed to the Ancient Hebrew or Jewish/Modern Hebrew script.
At Least Two Flowers of ISHaRaAL Not Just One
The ancient Hebrew word for "and" is not present in this verse (Son 2:1) in the Westminster Leningrad Codex (WLC). More literal versions do not insert the "and" between the word SHaRUN and the next word SHUSHaN.
However as we further study these two different flowers, the CHaBaTSaL (rose) and the SHUSHaN (lily), we shall see that they cannot be one and the same flower, as some mistakenly teach. Thus the "and" is appropriate to add in the middle of this verse.
To start with, the rose and lily do not belong to the same scientific order/family of nomenclature. Roses are in the rosales order, while lilies have their own order - liliales.
The Three Most Likely Flowers the Rose of SHaRUN Was
There are at least three other species of flowers, including one in particular that better relates to the Ancient Hebrew name, scripTURal symbolic characteristics, and historic use by the people of ISHaRaAL of this flower.
These three flowers, in order from most likely to least likely, are -
1) Hibiscus syriacus (red-heart variety). The common name today for hibiscus syriacus is the "Rose of Sharon" or "Shrub Althaea". The word hibiscus comes from the Ancient Hebrew word CHaBaTSaL which is the word uses for rose in Song of SHaLaME 2:1. Also the words SHaRUN and syriacus both have the same linguistic root that means cord, and is related to being straight or righteous. The stems of hibiscus syriacus are used for making cord. In addition this plant loves the light (sun). Moreover it is a hardy and resilient species that is very edible and medicinal. Thus it is a very strong and edifying plant. Below is a short video featuring this flower.
2) Cistus ladanifer. The most common name for the cistus ladanifer is the Gum rockrose or labdanum. It is also called the Rose of Sharon though to a lesser extent, especially by online essential oil stores. This is because it has very sticky and aromatic resin that does have some valuable healing and aroma therapeutic uses. This flower may be a natural imitator of the hibiscus syriacus though, mainly since it only lives for one day.
3) Hibiscus trionum. The common name for hibiscus trionum is "flower of an hour" because the petals of the flower only open up 1-2 hours per day. It is a wild flower in the State of Israel today. Again, the word hibiscus comes from the Ancient Hebrew word CHaBaTSaL for the word rose in Son 2:1, but still, this flower may just be a(nother) natural imitator of the hibiscus syriacus.
Most scripTURE versions use the word "rose" in Song of SHaLaME 2:1. One exception is the Concordant Literal Version (CLV) that uses the word "narcissus" A narcissus is a daffodil. Some believe this to be pancratium maritimum, or sea daffodil. However neither daffodils nor the rose are likely to be the correct flower, for reasons that will be further explained.
How These Three Flowers are Similar
All three of the above flowers are said to have their origin in the ancient Land of ISHaRaAL and look very similar to each other. Specifically they all have a red (fleshy) heart, only five petals (or layers of five petals each), a yellow centre and come in white varieties (that is, with the remaining petal colour of white, as you go out from centre).
Five is a leading factor in tabernacle measurement. The set-apart anointing oil was made of five parts. The five virgins were wise. Also the Daughter of TSIUN's (Jew. Heb. Zion's) sins go from read to white, white represents purification, and the harvest is white when ready. Finally both the hibiscus and cistus are part of the same scientific order/family which is MALvales. MAL means "From AL (El)" in Ancient Hebrew.
All Three Flowers have a Red (Fleshy) Heart Like ISHaRaAL
All three species of flowers have varieties with a red heart. A previously mentioned the hibiscus syriacus has a variety especially named after its red heart. Online plant nurseries such as Weston Nurseries in the US call the Rose of Sharon the "hibiscus syriacus (red heart)".
Likewise IEUE says to ICHaZaQaAL (Ezekiel) that IEUE (at least by the time He gathers them (verse 17)) will give the entire house of ISHaRaAL hearts of flesh. Living human hearts are red because they have blood flowing through them.
CLV Ezk 11:19 And I have given to them one heart, And a new spirit I do give in your midst, And I have turned the heart of stone out of their flesh, And I have given to them a heart of flesh.
Other candidates (not mentioned so far) for the Rose of SHaRUN do not come in red nor do they have red parts. The Hypericum calycinum, also called the Jerusalem Star or St John's Wort does not come in red, but only yellow. Similarly the lilium candidum commonly called the madonna lily does not come in red either.
All Three Flowers have Only Five Petals
Five petals are one of the most unique features of the hibiscus syriacus/cistus ladanifer/hibiscus trionum. Their petals are one of their chief identifiable characteristics. Other candidates for the Rose of SHaRUN almost always have more than five petals. These are - roses, pancratium maritimum, crocuses, tulip montanas, tulipa agenensis, lilium candidum and hypericum calcynium.
Five - A Leading Factor in Tabernacle Measurement
Five is a leading factor in tabernacle measurement (http://janetboyer.com/Numerology_Bible.html).
The assembly or bride of MaSHICH is the tabernacle of IEUE, and also the the dwelling place of the Set-Apart Spirit (IEUE's power).
The Set-Apart Anointing Oil was Made of Five Parts
The Set-Apart anointing oil was made of five parts. Five hence represents purity and set-apartness.
"5 THE NUMBER OF GRACE. Redemption. Israel came out of Egypt 5 in rank (Ex 13:18). David picked up 5 smooth stone to fight Goliath (1 Sam. 17:40). The Holy Anointing Oil was pure and composed of 5 parts (Ex. 30:23-25)." (http://www.carm.org/christianity/bible/what-biblical-numerology).
ISHaRaAL are a set-apart people.
The Five Virgins Were Wise
Five is associated with wisdom in the parable of the five wise virgins that IEUESHUO E MaSHICH taught us.
No doubt the (obedient) people of ISHaRaAL are the wisest of all people who have ever lived.
The Petals Go from Red to White Just as the Daughter of TSIUN's Sins Do
Just as these three flowers petals' go from red to white from the inside out, so does ISHaRaAL's sins go from red to white.
CLV Isa 1:8 And left is the daughter of TSIUN as a booth in a vineyard, as a lodge in a cucumber patch, as a city besieged. (Anc. Heb added by me)
AV Isa 1:18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith IEUE: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. (Anc. Heb added by me)
In the beginning of the "Zohar" it says: "Just as the rose which is among the thorns has red and white, so does the Assemblage of Israel have justice and mercy." http://britam.org/Roses.html
White Represents Purification
AV Dn 12:10 Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.
CLV Dn 11:35 "Some of the intelligent shall stumble, to refine and to purify and to whiten them till the era of the end; for it is yet further to the appointed time.
The Harvest is White When Ready
CLV Jn 4:35 "Are you not saying that, `Still four months is it, and the harvest is coming'? Lo! I am saying to you, Lift up your eyes and gaze on the countrysides, for they are white for harvest already.
Part of the Order of the Hibiscus and Cistus Means "From AL (El)
The order that hibiscus and cistus belong to (MALvales) includes an ancient Hebrew title for IEUE which is "AL" (EL in Jewish Hebrew). AL means "strong authority". AL combined with the letter M makes MAL. MAL is an English word meaning bad, that has the same sound as the ancient Hebrew phrase M AL which means "From AL" or "From God". Pagans (backslidden ISHaRaALites) may have thought anything from AL was bad since judgement comes from AL. The following is an excerpt from my article Words that are Same in English as Ancient Hebrew which again, helps show how the English Alphabet Shaped by Hebrews Only.
"MAL* (a combining form meaning “bad,” “wrongful,” “ill,” occurring originally in loanwords from French (malapert); on this model, used in the formation of other words (malfunction; malcontent)/M AL "mal" (from-AL (aka EL)-of (CHES) / to trespass, mal-administer, malady (ML), H410) [* Judgement is from AL (IEUE) thus pagans may have thought anything "from AL" ("M AL") was bad]"
Rose of SHaRUN Most Likely a Hibiscus Syriacus
The hibiscus syriacus is the most likely flower SHaLaME was talking about when he penned the words "CHaBaTSaLaT E SHaRUN"
Hibiscus Syriacus is Called the Rose of Sharon Today
Wikipedia first defines the Rose of Sharon as the hibiscus syriacus.
Also a Google image search for the "Rose of Sharon" brings up images of hibiscus syriacus.
Regular online plant stores refer the hibiscus syriacus as the Rose of Sharon. One particular store has many photos of all the different types of hibiscus syriacus. For even more spectacular images of this species see this hibiscus gallery.
That the Rose of Sharon is said to be an only American or Modern term for the hibiscus syriacus since 1847 should not be a cause to entirely dismiss this hibiscus as the true "Rose of SHaRUN" since Americans of European descent are ISHaRaALite people by blood. They thus may have preserved knowledge of this flower through their forefathers, as the Latin order of the hibiscus and cistus (MALvales) is likely to have done. In addition it was Carl Linnaeus, the father of modern organism nomenclature or taxonomy that coined used the epithet "syriacus" to describe this flower, and he died in 1778, so its Latin name is actually older than what some say.
English "HiBiScus" from Ancient Hebrew "CHaBaTSaL"
One large reason why the Rose of SHaRUN is really a hibiscus is because the English word HIBISCUS comes from the Ancient Hebrew word (via the Latin "hibiscus") for the same flower which is CHaBaTSaL. CHaBaTSaL (H2261) is the ancient Hebrew word for the first flower in Song of SHaLaME 2:1. The letters that are the same in each word have been bolded in both Ancient Hebrew and English. This is because the English language was mainly shaped by Hebrews Only. The English letter H evolved from the ancient Hebrew letter named CHaTS (heth in Jewish Hebrew). The English letter B evolved from the ancient Hebrew letter named BaT (beth in Jewish Hebrew). Similarly the English letter S evolved in part from the ancient Hebrew letter TSaD (aka tsade in Jewish Hebrew).
The Jewish Hebrew word for "rose" here which is "chavatzel" gives us less of a clue as to what this flower is. This is due to the partial perversion of the ancient Hebrew language into Jewish Hebrew by scribes who have conspired to make us forget the Name IEUE (Jer 8:8, 23:26). In the word chavatzel the V should be a B, and the TZ should be a TS. See the Evolution of the English Alphabet Chart for more.
The Words SHaRUN and Syriacus Both Relate to Righteousness
The words SHaRUN and syriacus both have the same linguistic root (SHaR) that means cord, or tie. This is the parent root word of an ancient Hebrew word (ISHaR) for being straight, righteous, or a remnant. The stem of hibiscus syriacus is actually used for making cord.
Strong said that the word "Sharon" means plain, as in a plain of land. He said that Sharon comes from the word ISHaR (H3474) (Jew. Heb, Yashar) which means straight or even. A plain is horizontally straight.
Probably abridged from H3474; plain; Sharon, the name of a place in Palestine: - Lasharon, Sharon.
A primitive root; to be straight or even; figuratively to be (causatively to make) right, pleasant, prosperous: - direct, fit, seem good (meet), + please (well), be (esteem, go) right (on), bring (look, make, take the) straight (way), be upright (-ly).
ISHaR (and SHaR) means cord. However ISHaR can also mean straight (to be in a straight line, path or thought) because cords are straight. Moreover it can mean a righteous one. "A tight rope is straight. A righteous one is one who is straight and firmly holds up truth just as the cord is straight and firmly holds the wall of the tent upright." (AHLB#: 1480-L (V)). Finally ISHaR can mean remnant since the leftover sinews of animals were used as cords to hold the tents up (Ancient Hebrew Lexicon of the Bible (AHLB)).
We know that the people of ISHaRaAL are described as a remnant in many places in scripTURE.
As mentioned before, the stem of hibiscus syriacus is used for cordage, in other words rope (http://www.pfaf.org/database/plants.php?Hibiscus+syriacus). Cistus ladanifer and hibiscus trionum, the other candidates being discussed here, are not used for cordage/fibre.
SHaRUN is now called Sharon in Jewish Hebrew. It is a fertile plain in the West of Israel, as well as a girl's name.
"The girl's name Sharon \sh(a)-ron\ is pronounced SHARE-en. It is of Hebrew origin, and its meaning is "a fertile plain". Biblical place name: refers to flat land at the foot of Mount Carmel. The Song of Solomon describes the beloved Schulamite woman as a flower of Sharon. Actresses Sharon Gless, Sharon Stone." (http://www.thinkbabynames.com/meaning/0/Sharon).
The word syriacus is related to the English word Syria. The hibiscus syriacus is said to have its origins in Syria. Ancient ISHaRaAL once included at least half of present day Syria. Linnaeus in the 18th century provided this species with the description syriacus, thinking it to be indigenous to the Middle East (http://hibiscusworld.com/BeersBook/12-Syriacus.htm), despite it being found moreso in modern Asia today. Some say it was so long gardened in Europe that its origin of Asia was for some while forgotten, however if that really were the case it is a little confusing why "syriacus" was used for no apparent reason, especially in light of all the other evidence there is that support this flower being the Rose of SHaRUN.
Even if this flower was only cultivated and hence exotic to the Land of ISHaRaAL, then that may actually add to it being the true CHaBaTSaL in the sense since the Bride of MaSHICH is SUPPOSED to be cultivated - ie pruned, loved and cared for by a man (IEUESHUO), and by the end of this millennium brought in from afar from her countries of exile. Also plains are more often cultivated than not, due to their ease of accessibility to people with ploughing animals such as oxen, and the CHaBaTSaLaT E SHaRUN is found on plains as its name explains.
The other flower that represents ISHaRaAL, the Lily of the Valleys which is most likely the lilium candidum is almost extinct as a wild flower in the State of Israel from over plucking and lack of sun. People say that this plant too is originally from Asia. Therefore the hibiscus syriacus may have just simply been picked to extinction due to its popularity and special symbolism.
Also it cannot be ruled out that some elite humanistic or atheist botanists may be attempting to de-emphasize the true origin of the hibiscus syriacus (syria) if they know it represents the Bride of IEUESHUO.
Syria is a shortened form of Assyria. Assyria in Ancient Hebrew is ASHUR. ASHUR and SHaRUN have three letters the same (SHaN/shin, RaSH/resh and UU/vav) and the same ancient Hebrew root (SHaR), that means cord. The Assyrians/ASHURians lived near the plain of SHaNOR (aka Shinar), which has the letters SHaN and RaSH from the root SHaR also. SHaNOR/Shinar was most certainly on the well known fertile plain of antiquity between the great rivers the Tigris and the Euphrates.
Thus the words SHaRUN and syriacus indicate that the hibiscus like the people of ISHaRaAL should be found in straight and righteous locations (plains) amongst other believers and the Words of IEUE, and give themselves (their stems) to help make the world a more straight and righteous place.
Hibiscus Syriacus Loves the Light
"H. syriacus types do best in full sun" (http://hibiscusworld.com/BeersBook/12-Syriacus.htm).
ISHaRaAL are similarly the children of the light. They doe their best when they are exposed to the light of the Word of IEUE.
Hibiscus Syriacus is Very Hardy
"It is very strong.; if cut and put in a vase, it will survive for a longer period of time than many other plants." (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hibiscus_syriacus). This species is hardy to about -20°c and tastes a little on the tough side (to chew) (http://www.pfaf.org/database/plants.php?Hibiscus+syriacus).
Likewise the people of ISHaRaAL are a resilient group of people, and some find their deeds, words and warnings meaty and chewy (if not hard to swallow sometimes !).
Hibiscus Syriacus the Most Edible and Medicinal of the Three
The hibiscus syriacus is more edible than the cistus ladanifer and hibiscus trionum. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hibiscus_syriacus, http://www.pfaf.org/database/plants.php?Hibiscus+syriacus).
This means that when other humans encounter the people of ISHaRaAL, these other humans should be edified as food edifies the physical body.
Also the hibiscus syriacus has four times the amount of medicinal uses as the cistus ladanifer and hibiscus trionum -
"The leaves are diuretic, expectorant and stomachic[218, 240]. A decoction of the flowers is diuretic, ophthalmic and stomachic[147, 178, 218]. It is also used in the treatment of itch and other skin diseases, dizziness and bloody stools accompanied by much gas. The bark contains several medically active constituents, including mucilage, carotenoids, sesquiterpenes and anthocyanidins. A decoction of the root bark is antiphlogistic, demulcent, emollient, febrifuge, haemostatic and vermifuge[218, 240]. It is used in the treatment of diarrhoea, dysentery, abdominal pain, leucorrhoea, dysmenorrhoea[240, 279] and dermaphytosis." (http://www.pfaf.org/database/plants.php?Hibiscus+syriacus).
Similarly the deeds and words of the people of ISHaRaAL bring healing, as their Kings IEUE and IEUESHUO have brought and will continue to bring.
The Hebrew Tudor "Rose"
The inner five red parts (or "heart") of the three leading flowers being discussed, especially hibiscus syriacus, look very similar to the "Tudor Rose". This is the flower that the House of Tudor used to symbolise their House. The House of Tudor was a prominent European royal house that ruled the Kingdom of England and its realms from 1485 until 1603.
A book written by the great Tudor king Henry VIII before his breach with the Roman Catholic Church regarding his proposed divorce from Katherine of Aragon, has the Tudor Rose on its cover along with the Latin motto, “Hac Rosa Virtutis de Celo Missa Cereno Eturnu(m) Florens (Fulgens) Regia Sceptra Feret”. In modern English this reads: “This rose of virtue sent us from on high shall shine in sceptred state eternally”. Only three copies are known to exist of this book – one is held by Her Majesty the Queen, the other is held by the Vatican. (Stephen Spykerman, http://britam.org/Roses.html).
Yair Davidiy author of the BritAm website and numerous books on the truth about the lost tribes of ISHaRaAL has compiled a page of Tudor Roses to illustrate the historical background for their choice of this symbol for their ministry. They say the Tudor Rose is the "Rose of Sharon", and use it for the symbol of their organisation BritAm, because they say it represents the unification of the tribes. Davidiy provides an image of a Jewish Prayer book found in Worms, Germany that contains flowers. These flowers closely resemble the Tudor Rose and the leading candidates for the Rose of SHaRUN being discussed in this article.
Also according to Davidiy, "The Tudor Rose was introduced by the Welshman, Henry Tudor, when he became King of England (1485-1509)". "Henry Tudor was a great man: He came from a Ruling House legendarily connected with King Arthur and he may have been descended (as some believe) from King David. “He has been called the Solomon of England”. He asserted the independence of England from Europe. The history of modern England as an outwardly looking independently minded great nation begins with Henry. His reign marks the beginning of that period in which the blessings promised to the seed of Israel would be realized in the British and British descended peoples!" (http://britam.org/Roses.html).
The Tudor Rose is an important symbol to England to this day. It is still used as the plant badge of England, on the dress uniforms of the Yeomen Warders at the Tower of London, and of the Yeomen of the Guard. It features on the British Twenty Pence coin and the Royal Coat of Arms of the United Kingdom. It also features, albeit subtly, on the Coat of arms of Canada. The Tudor Rose makes up part of the cap badge of the Intelligence Corps of the British Army. It is also notably used (albeit, confusingly enough in a monochromatic form) as the symbol of the English Tourist Board. It is used as the name of a brand of fortified wine. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tudor_rose).
The Tudor Rose is also an important symbol to the USA. "The United States Congress in 1986 chose the rose as the national flower of the USA." (http://britam.org/Roses.html).
The native British (and subsequently American) people are almost certainly the physical offspring of the man IOQaB (Jacob) later known as ISHaRaAL (aka Israel). It is not surprising therefore that their royalty and leaders may have adopted or popularised a symbol of ancient and modern (royal) ISHaRaAL.
Rosa Gallica Still Has Five Petals
The Tudors may have designed their Tudor Rose on a real rose, as indicated by their paintings of, for example King Henry the Seventh shown on Davidiy's webpage (http://britam.org/Roses.html). This rose is said by some to be the rosa gallica/gallic rose/french rose/apothecary's rose often believed to be the red rose of lancaster (what the Tudor Tose is almost certainly based on in part). Rose gallica has five petals in its wild state, but more when cultivated.
However since the royalty of the House of Tudor were of the people of ISHaRaAL, they may also have known of the CHaBaTSaLaT E SHaRUN, in the form of the hibiscus syriacus. Either way, they almost certainly must have had knowledge of a significant, five petaled flower. Five appears to have been the ideal number of the petals, or layers of petals (the Red Rose of Lancaster had two layers of five petals to start with, and so did the White Rose of York) of the true Rose of SHaRUN, otherwise there would be no war between the two Houses (of England) resulting from their belief that they each were the rose of virtue sent from on high to rule.
It could be that their knowledge of the true flower was lost, but not of the five petals it had. This may be seen as typical of the lost tribes of ISHaRaAL in their scattered state.
The rosa gallica is not as edible as the hibiscus syriacus. It has a layer of hairs around the seeds just beneath the flesh of the fruit. These hairs can cause irritation to the mouth and digestive tract if ingested http://www.pfaf.org/database/plants.php?Rosa+gallica. Therefore it is unlikely such a noxious plant would symbolise the people of ISHaRaAL. Needless to say roses are renowned for their thorny stems that bring much pain when grabbed. In contrast the stem of the hibiscus syriacus can hold thing up or together because of its straightness (ability to be cordage).
The 13 Petaled Zohar Flower
Some say that the original CHaBaTSaL (rose) of SHaRUN had 13 petals "as the Zohar suggests", and then that the Tudor Rose had ten petals because England is home to the lead tribe (APaRIM/Ephraim) of the ten "lost" tribes of the Northern House of ISHaRaAL. However this is NOT based on a real botanic flower (rose or otherwise) with 13 petals. What we do have instead, is a considerable amount of evidence pointing to the five petaled CHaBaTSaLaT E SHaRUN.
The Tudor "Rose" Has Five Red Petals
All of the four flowers hibiscus syriacus, cistus ladanifer, hibiscus trionum, and the Tudor Rose have the following starting from the center, looking straight at the flower -
1) An overall light yellow core in the middle provided by the stamens and pistil combined. Stamens are the male reproductive parts of a flower that have filaments and anthers. Stamens hold pollen grains and are yellow in the hibiscus syriacus. The pistil is the female part of the flower made up of the stigma, style and ovary. These are where the pollen grains land on and fertilise the ovaries. These female parts are more white in the hibiscus syriacus. While many flowers have a yellow center, the centre of the Tudor Rose is in the same proportion to the rest of the red heart across the three flower types being discussed. (The fact that a flower has both male and female parts indicates that the people of ISHaRaAL who will rule and reign in the New Millennium who are first fruits unto the Lamb and part of the 144000 are both Male and Female. See the article The 144 000 Include Females for more evidence.)
2) Five red parts. The petals of the Tudor Rose are also the exact same shape as the red parts of the hibiscus syriacus.
The Tudor Rose also has five white parts/petals around the central yellow core. These correspond to the White House Symbol of the House of York. The Tudor Rose is said to the a fusion of the White Rose symbol of the House of York, and the Red Rose of the House of Lancaster.
The Tudors Followed the Desires of their Hearts
The outer part of the rest of the petals (which can be white, pink, red, lavender, purple or yellow) of these hibiscusae and cistusae is not shown in Tudor Roses, probably because only the inner part was of value since it represented the heart. The Tudors are infamous for their debauchery and may have chosen this symbol out of sensual desires of the heart. For example Henry the Eighth and his many wives, and some say many concubines also.
Alternatively (or also), the Tudor Rose was a symbol of the House of Tudor's desire to replace scripTURal ISHaRaAL, or a reminder to kill/cull the true CHaBaTSaLaT E SHaRUN which is the assembly/church. The term "rosicrucian" may mean "rose-crucifiers". Rosicrucianism started only several years after the House of Tudor finished ruling, possibly to continue the persecution of IEUE's people.
The House of Tudor also used other scripTURal symbols, namely the Fleur de Lis (again, which shall be discussed in more detail later), and the pomegranate, which was worn on the hem of the high priest in the tabernacle and temple of IEUE (Exo 28:34, 39:26). These all add to the case for the English people, at least in Tudor times, and in part today, were the descendants of the patriarch IOQaB/ISHaRaAL.
Cistus Ladanifer - Natural Imitator of the Hibiscus Syriacus Number 1?
The second most likely candidate for the CHaBaTSaLaT E SHaRUN is the cistus ladanifer. The most common name for the cistus ladanifer is labdanum or gum rockrose. It is also called the Rose of Sharon, especially by online essential oil stores. For example, http://ezinearticles.com/?Essential-Oils---Cistus---A-Beautiful-Ros..., http://www.therapeutic-grade.com/products/singles/cistus.html, and http://www.universalhealthnetwork.com/site/266262/product/TWELVE.OI....
The cistus ladanifer only comes in white, has a few medicinal applications, and some uses from its resin. Its leaves and stems are sticky. The whole plant is covered with the sticky exudate of fragrant resin. Some say that shepherds collected this gum off the coats of goats that had got entangled in the bushes, and then used it to heal cuts and abrasions http://healingoils.homestead.com/. This cistus is found in Europe and the Western Mediterranean, are hardy and likes the sun. The English word "sister" may be related to the Latin "cistus" since in Ancient Hebrew the word for sister (ACHUT) means "Protector that Bonds and Impresses", and the cistus family of plants also bond to other nearby objects using its resin.
However the cistus ladanifer is an ungainly plant not well suited to cultivation (http://www.cistuspage.org.uk/Cistus%20ladanifer.htm). Also it "is an extremely invasive plant" that takes over former farmlands and grasslands with a vengeance (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cistus_ladanifer). Moreover it is edible but only half as much as the hibiscus syriacus, and dislikes pruning. It may be of much use fragrantly, but its healing properties are far outweighed by the hibiscus syriacus. In addition the flower only lasts for one day. The book of James tell us that some of the rich will disappear like a flower in the field (Jam 1:10). The cistus ladanifer grows like wildfire in fields and lasts for only a short time so it may therefore be a candidate for the flower that James was referring to here.
The cistus ladanifer may be a natural imitator/symbol of the true CHaBaTSaL (hibiscus) of SHaRUN, just as the whore of Revelation is an immitator of the true Bride of the MaSHICH (ISHaRaAL). The fact that the hibiscus syriacus has a natural imitator adds to the notion that the hibiscus syriacus is the true Rose of SHaRUN, just as the Bride has imitators also.
Hibiscus Trionium - Natural Imitator of the Hibiscus Syriacus Number 2?
Flower-of-an-Hour (hibiscus trionum) is an annual plant that is said to have originally grew to the east of the Mediterranean. The plant grows to a height of 20-50 cm, sometimes as much as 80 cm and has white or yellow flowers with a purplish red centre.
Although it is a modern wild flower of the State if Israel (where as hibiscus syriacus and cistus ladanifer are not) the hibiscus trionum is only visible for up to 1-2 hours per day, is a weed, and has red stigmas at the core instead of white making its centre less yellow (and more unlike the Tudor Rose), and not white and pure as the female parts of ISHaRaAL (the women) should be.
The hibiscus trionum therefore may be a natural imitator/symbol, again, of the true CHaBaTSaL (hibiscus) of SHaRUN, just as the whore of Revelation is an immitator of the true Bride of the MaSHICH (ISHaRaAL).
The Lily of the Valley
The Lily of the Valley also represents ISHaRaAL. Let's go back to Song of SHaLaME 2:1 to remind us of what says -
AV Ss 2:1 . I [am] the rose of Sharon, [and] the lily of the valleys.
Again, here we have the Beloved (Bride to be) describing herself. The second part of the verse here is the "lily of the valleys", or SHUSHaNaT (lily (H7799) of) E (the) OMaQIM (valleys, H6010) in ancient Hebrew. Some call this the "Lily of Jacob" or "Shoshana Yaacov".
Next in the Song of SHaLaME the Lover who is SHaLaME (Solomon) himself (and also a type of IEUESHUO E MaSHICH), confirms that His bride to be is a SHUSHaN (lily) when he says -
AV Ss 2:2 As the lily among thorns, so [is] my love among the daughters.
Most English translations of this verse use the word "lily' for SHUSHaN. Only the Jewish Zohar's translation uses the word "rose". There are many reasons why this flower is a lily and NOT a rose though, that shall be discussed, chiefly that the Madonna Lily or lilium candidum often grows amongst thorns, but the hibiscus syriacus does not.
The daughters and thorns in this verse can be viewed as the the unrepentant gentiles (nations/peoples). Thorns are more commonly found in valleys where there is less cultivation. Hence the lily of the valleys (Son 2:1) is likely to be the same flower as the lily among thorns (Son 2:2). However, both of the plain and valley with its thorns can be hostile or desolate in their own ways, just as the world has been and still is towards IEUE's chosen people
The scripTUREs also compares ISHaRaAL to a SHUSHaN in Hosea 14:5 -
AV Ho 14:5 I will be as the dew unto ISHaRaAL: he shall grow as the lily [SHUSHaN], and cast forth his roots as LaBaNUN. (Anc. Heb added by me).
“In Jewish Liturgy the Shoshana Yaaqov represents all of Israel”. (http://britam.org/Roses.html).
It is highly likely we associate lilies with peace because the assembly/ISHaRaAL will help bring peace on Earth with IEUESHUO for 1000 years.
Similarly lilies might be used in funerals because they are a hopeful symbol of when those asleep will be awakened to join their fellow set-apart servants.
Lilies Were a Prominent Features in King Solomon's Temple
The Lily (SHUSHaN, H7799) of the Valleys were prominent features in King SHaLaME's temple during Paleo Hebrew times. There were lilies engraved at the top of its pillars (on the capitals). A capital is an architectural word for the top part of a pillar or column.
1Ki 7:19 And the capitals that were on top of the columns in the hall were in the shape of lilies, four cubits.
1Ki 7:22 And on the top of the columns was lily work. Thus the work of the columns was completed.
Also the molten sea, a large basin for the ablution of priests in the temple had a rim shaped like a lily blossom.
AV 1Ki 7:23 And he made a molten sea, ten cubits from the one brim to the other: [it was] round all about, and his height [was] five cubits: and a line of thirty cubits did compass it round about.
AV 1Ki 7:26 And it [was] an hand breadth thick, and the brim thereof was wrought like the brim of a cup, with flowers of lilies: it contained two thousand baths.
AV 2Ch 4:5 And the thickness of it [was] an handbreadth, and the brim of it like the work of the brim of a cup, with flowers of lilies; [and] it received and held three thousand baths.
This old Jewish coin shows how the molten sea (and hence the SHUSaNaT E OMaQIM/ Lily of the Valleys) may have looked.
A Rose is Not a Lily
Some think that the CHaBaTSaL (rose) of SHaRUN is the one and only flower that IEUE has used to symbolise his people ISHaRaAL. They lump the two flowers in Song of SHaLaME 2:1-2 together. For example, Yair Davidiy of BritAm says that the Rose of Sharon is the same flower as the Shoshana (lily) Yaacov. He says that, ""Lily" in Hebrew is "shoshana" and actually means a rose." (http://britam.org/Roses.html).
However, shoshana (Anc. Heb. SHUSHaN) is translated as "lily" by most scripTURE versions of Song of SHaLaME 2:1, and not rose. Also, the hibiscus syriacus (CHaBaTSaL ("rose") of SHaRUN) does not like to grow amongst the thorns. It hates competition. "Like most hibiscus they prefer to be planted on their own or with other hibiscus, as they dislike competition from other plants." (http://hibiscusworld.com/BeersBook/12-Syriacus.htm). Thorns and weeds are fiercely competitive as any even beginning gardener would know. Moreover, as mentioned previously the rose and lily are not even in the same order. They look very different from each other. Also the word "lily" may be linked to the word "valley". In addition the word SHUSHaN is now used as the female name Susan and in modern times is defined as meaning "lily". Also we see a lot of artwork - stone, wood, metal in Europe and the Middle East with two flowers, which look like a hibiscus and a lily, side by side (as shown in the images on the left). And last but not least, the royal symbol the Fleur de Lis is a much better candidate than the Tudor Rose for the SHUSHaNaT E OMaQIM (Lily of the Valleys) in Son 2:1.
The Word Lily May be Linked to the Word Valley
Both the words lily and valley have two L's, and a Y in them.
The Name Susan is Derived from SHUSHaN
The female name Susan comes from the ancient Hebrew word SHUSHaN (H7799). It is defined in baby names resources today as meaning "lily".
"The girl's name Susan \s(u)-san\ is pronounced SOO-zun. It is of Hebrew origin, and its meaning is "lily". Short form of Susannah." (http://www.thinkbabynames.com/meaning/0/Susan).
In Old English "S" was said as a "SH", so in Old English SHUSHaN was said exactly as it was in Ancient Hebrew.
The Hebrew Fleur de Lis
Just as the English Tudor Rose is most likely the scripTURal CHaBaTSaLaT E SHaRUN (Rose of SHaRUN), because the lost tribes of ISHaRaAL settled in the West, so the European Fleur de Lis is the most likely the scripTURal SHUSHaNaT E OMaQIM (Lily of the Valleys).
The Fleur de Lis (French for "flower of lily") is a symbol of royal sovereignty used by the kings and queens of France, England and Spain especially in the Middle Ages. Also it is found in locations of Lost-Tribe antiquity following the pathway the ten tribes took from Assyria to Europe, including a route through Greece.
Here are lots of different Fleur de Lis emblems, all on one page.
The Fleur-De-Lis' "appearance on coins of many countries is a “valuable coin story” for collectors worldwide." (http://www.valuable-coin-stories.com/fleur-de-lis.html)
It is said that the design can be found in many places long before heraldic times, as far back as Mesopotamia, however people may have just taken the SHUSHaNaT E OMaQIM with them to Mesopotamia during and after the rule of King SHaLaME, or quite simply, it was one of many ornamental insignias of old. Doubtless it would not have been so popular as the time after SHaLaME placed them in the MaSHaKaN/dwelling-place/temple because the Golden Rule of King DUID (David) and SHaLaME encompassed the entire Earth at that time.
Fleur de Lis designs have even been found in Egypt. Again, these are likely to be relatively recent given that the SHUSHaNaT E OMaQIM was not mentioned in the scripTURES until the time of SHaLaME.
The Time Life movies made within the last ten years called "David" and "Solomon" have the Fleur de Lis symbol embroidered on one or some of the walls of the royal palace. The set designers obviously knew that SHaLaME was using this symbol in the temple, and hence most likely his palace also.
The new Israeli shekel coin has the madonna lily on its obverse. Apparently it is based on a coin used in BaBaLon. It also uses the Paleo Hebrew script which was almost certainly used in the time of SHaLaME. The letters read "IED" (ID/yod, EA/heh, DaL/dalet) from the tribe IEUDE or IEUEDE (aka Judah).
Lulav did not Inspire the Fleur de Lis
Some say that Jewish lulav has a similar design to the Fleur de Lis. A lulav is made with a palm frond which sticks up straight and the branches of willow and myrtle trees next to it.
However the lulav is not half as beautiful as a lily (!). Based on this reason alone it is highly unlikely the lulav was the inspiration for the Fleur de Lis. Is it far more probable that the lulav was actually inspired by the lilium candidum (vice versa). If the assembly is meant to look like the lulav then it may be depressing for some diligent followers of IEUE (!)
These types of suggestions reflect that it just be that some of the Jewish people have got so detached from their ancient royal customs and symbols, that they just cannot recognise the symbols because they think Europeans are just "goys" (goyim/gentiles/pagans/lost).
Lily from LUI (Levi)
The words "lily" and "lis" probably come from the name of French kings who used the lily in their heraldry, who were personally called "Loi" or "Loys". Louis is a related name. All of these names come from LUI (aka Levi) the son of IOQaB/ISHaRaAL, which adds to the case that the Fleur de Lis is of ISHaRaAL (is Hebrew).
The most probable explanation of the origin of the fleur-de-lis as a device of the Kings of France is... "that the fleur de lys, or flower de luce was merely a rebus signifying fleur de Louis." Up to the time of Louis VII the kings of that name (identical with Clovis) called themselves, and signed themselves, Loi"s or Loys. Even after the name had settled into its present form, Loys was still the signature of the kings of France up to the time of Louis XIII (1610-43). Loys, or Louis VII received from his father the surname Florus." (http://www.heraldica.org/topics/fdl.htm).
The French Kings may have been LUItes (Levites). They may have known that the lily of the valleys was used to decorate the temple of SHaLaME where LUIte priests served.
Fleur de Lis Came Before the Triple Plumage and Spear-Head, Not Vice Versa
The Fleur de Lis has been likened to the symbolic triple plumage of feathers as seen on family crests. The Fleur would have come first though more likely since there is far more biblical value placed on and scripTURal references to the SHUSHaNaT E OMaQIM (Lily of the Valleys).
The same would apply to the Fleur de Lis originating from a spear-head, and other similarly shaped objects. The latter may be legitimate symbols on heralds with particular meanings, but that does not mean the Fleur de lis came from them.
For more information about the role of history, mainly from a secular standpoint, of the Fleur de lis see http://www.fleurdelis.com/fleur.htm and http://www.heraldica.org/topics/fdl.htm. The second page suggests that the Fleur de lis was an iris, but in light of all the other evidence of the SHUSHaNaT E OMaQIM presented here this is very unlikely.
Lily of the Valleys Most Likely a Lilium Candidum (Madonna Lily)
The Lily of the Valleys is most likely lilium candidum (common name madonna lily) because it especially likes to grow amongst thorny scrub. Also many would say it is the most beautiful lily. Moreover it is very scarce. In addition the word "madonna" is related to the word "maiden", "candid" means pure, white and sincere", and the phrase "Ka NaD" in Ancient Hebrew means "as the waterspout". Lilies can collect water if held upright, just like the molten sea held water for the washing of the priests. Finally their white corolla is funnel like (as in a water funnel) with six pointed lobes that form the symmetrical shape of the Star-of-David.
It also shares many of the same features as the hibiscus syriacus: it comes (in this case, only) in white; it loves the light; is very hardy; is edible and medicinal; and, is a hermaphrodite.
Lilium candidum is a wild flower in the state of Israel today (http://www.wildflowers.co.il/english/plant.asp?ID=2). It is the only wild lily found in Israel (http://www.wildflowers.co.il/english/plantsIndex.asp.
Also it is said that the lilium candidum originated in the East Mediterranean and transferred to all other parts of the world. (http://www.wildflowers.co.il/english/plant.asp?ID=2).
Some say it is found mainly in S.W. Asia, and is said to have been naturalized in Europe around the Mediterranean. (http://www.pfaf.org/database/plants.php?Lilium+candidum). However just like the hibiscus syriacus that is found in E Asia, from China to India, this does not mean that the lilium candidum was not originally from within the ancient boundaries of ISHaRaAL. Also, even if it was not (from ISHaRaAL), it's cultivated/exotic-ness still has value in that the human seed of ISHaRaAL has been scattered around the Earth, as explained previously.
Lilium Candidum Grows in the Thorns
One of the main pieces of evidence that the lilium candidum is the Lily of the Valleys is that the lilium candidum is often found amongst thorns because it likes to grow on rocky slopes (valleys) and in scrub (thorns and weeds) up to 600 metres asl (http://www.pfaf.org/database/plants.php?Lilium+candidum).
The photo below is a real photo of the lilium candidum in situ living on very steep slopes in a valley alongside thorny scrub. Click to enlarge.
Lilium Candidum is the Most Beautiful Lily
That the lilium candidum is the most beautiful lily, if not, one of the most pure and exquisite flowers on Earth is undeniable by almost anyone with eyes.
Comparably the bride of the MaSHICH's beauty is also just as splendid. IEUESHUO talks about the lilies of the field and how SHaLaME (Solomon) was not dressed as these are. He may be saying that the lilies in the temple SHaLaME built are just a natural type of the more beautiful spiritual dwelling place of IEUE, which is IEUESHUO's Bride (the body of MaSHICH).
Lilium Candidum is Scarce
The Madonna lily has a long history of herbal use, though it is seldom employed in modern herbalism because of its scarcity (http://www.pfaf.org/database/plants.php?Lilium+candidum).
Correspondingly the people of ISHaRaAL to rule in the new millennium may only number 144000: 12000 from each of 12 tribes.
"Heavy uprooting and picking in the past brought this species to the verge of extinction." (http://www.wildflowers.co.il/english/plant.asp?ID=2).
Likewise ISHaRaAL has always been uprooted, attacked and martyred over the ages. There are not many of her left.
"Madonna" Related to "Maiden"
The words Madonna and Maiden share four of the same letters - M, A, D, and N. Both Italian and English are languages spoken by the lost tribes of ISHaRaAL.
"madonna - 1584, "Italian lady," from It. madonna, from O.It. ma donna (It. mia donna) "my lady," from ma "my" + donna "lady." Sense of "picture or statue of the Virgin Mary" is from 1644."
"maiden - O.E. mæden, mægden, dim. of mægð, mægeð "maid," from P.Gmc. *magadinom "young womanhood, sexually inexperienced female" (cf. O.S. magath, O.Fris. maged, O.H.G. magad, Ger. Magd "maid, maidservant," Ger. Mädchen "girl, maid," from Mägdchen "little maid"), fem. variant of PIE base *maghu- "youngster of either sex, unmarried person" (cf. O.E. magu "child, son," Avestan magava- "unmarried," O.Ir. maug "slave"). Figurative sense of "new fresh, first" (cf. maiden voyage) first recorded 1555. For maidenhead (c.1300) see godhead."
The Roman Catholic Church ascribed the lily as the special emblem of the Virgin Mary (http://www.fleurdelis.com/fleur.htm). This is likely merely their attempt to substitute the true maiden of IEUESHUO with a BaBaLonian substitute. IEUESHUO's mother MaRIM has merely become another idol of the BaBaLonian system of worship, that started out with Semiramis, who really was just NaMaRUD's (Nimrod's) wife.
"Due to its three "petals," the fleur-de-lis has also been used to represent the Holy Trinity." (http://www.fleurdelis.com/fleur.htm ).
Again, here we have the pseudo-maiden perverting a symbol that really should represent oneness and unity.
Candid Means "Pure, White and Sincere"
"candid 1630, from L. candidum "white, pure, sincere," from candere "to shine," from PIE base *kand- "to glow, to shine" (see candle). Metaphoric extension to "frank" first recorded 1675. Of photography, 1929."
Ka NaD in Ancient Hebrew means "Waterspout"
Ka NaD (H5067)in Ancient Hebrew means "as the waterspout". It is used once in the WLC in TEILIM (Psalms) 33:7.
CLV Ps 33:7 He is collecting the waters of the sea together as a waterspout, Bestowing the abyss in treasure vaults.
In the same degree the funnel -like corona of lily flowers can collect water if held upright, just like the molten sea held water for the washing of the priests. The word "CaNDid" is very similar to the phrase "Ka NaD".
Lilium Candidum's Corolla is Like the Star of David
The white corolla viewed from front on of the lilium candidum is funnel like with six pointed lobes that form the symmetrical shape of the Star-of-David. http://www.wildflowers.co.il/english/plant.asp?ID=2.
Although other species of lilies always have six petals too, the lilium candidum's coronet from front-on are particularly triangular. Some other lily species' petals can tend to curl much more over, losing their triangular look from straight on as shown in the photos on Wikipedia page on the genus lilium.
The Star of David therefore may actually represent the Lily of the Valleys, the molten sea of the temple from above, and the tops of the temple pillars from above. The star may not be so pagan as some suggest.
The Wikipedia page on the madonna lily has a photo of the Star of David superimposed onto it with this explanation -
"The Metsudot says that the word "lily" is synonymous with six, because it always has six petals. Six petals of the flower form a shape that resembles the Star of David, and this is a source of importance of the Star of David in Judaism." (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Madonna_lily).
Lilium Candidum Comes Only in White
Do a google search and you will only find white lilium candidumae. "Flowers are white, flushed yellow at the base." (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Madonna_lily).
As mentioned previously white represents purification, the harvest being ready, and perhaps mercy/favour.
Lilium Candidum Likes the Sun
The lilium candidum prefers a sunny position (http://www.pfaf.org/database/plants.php?Lilium+candidum).
One reason why this species is at the verge of extinction is because of the closure of woody areas due to cessation of goat grazing that was much more common in the past. This closure reduces the amounts of light the plants receive and decrease blooming and seed production (http://www.wildflowers.co.il/english/plant.asp?ID=2).
Similarly it seems that IEUE's people are few and far between with the spiritual darkness that appears to be growing around them day by day.
Lilium Candidum is Very Hardy
"The Madonna lily is generally very hardy and easy to grow" (http://www.pfaf.org/database/plants.php?Lilium+candidum).
Lilium Candidum is Edible
The root is the edible part of the lilium candidum. This must be heated/cooked to destroy an acrid principle. When cooked the bulb is pulpy, sweet and sugary. Rich in starch, it can be used as a vegetable in similar ways to potatoes (Solanum tuberosum). (http://www.pfaf.org/database/plants.php?Lilium+candidum).
Lilium Candidum is Very Medicinal
The lilium candidum is a medicinal astringent, demulcent, emmenagogue, emollient and expectorant. It's flower also provides an essential oil.
The plant is mainly used externally, being applied as a poultice to tumours, ulcers, external inflammations etc[4, 238]. The bulb is harvested in August and can be used fresh or dried[4, 238]. The flowers are harvested when fully open and used fresh for making juice, ointments or tinctures. The pollen has been used in the treatment of epilepsy...An essential oil from the flowers is used in perfumery (http://www.pfaf.org/database/plants.php?Lilium+candidum).
Lilium Candidum is a Hermaphrodite
The lilium candidum has flowers that are hermaphrodite (have both male and female organs) and are pollinated by insects. Again, like the hibicus syriacus this indicates that the people (144000) of ISHaRaAL are both female and male.
Convallaria Majalis is a Less Likely Candidate
There is a flower with the common name "Lily of the Valley", that is very cute and does resemble the lily. It particularly looks like the Star of David from front-on also, and is very hardy.
However is is not a member of the lilium (lily) order. Also it is a woodland plant, and not a plant found in steep slopes amongst thorns where trees struggle to take root. Moreover it all of its parts, including the berries, are highly poisonous. Roughly 38 poisons have been found in it. Also it behaves like a weed by forming extensive colonies by spreading underground stems. It succeeds in any situation. Finally, the plants are self-sterile, which means even through they have male and female parts in each flower they cannot fertilise themselves like the lilium candidum or hibiscus syriacus. The Bride of MaSHICH is comprised of male and female people. If one flower is compared to these people as a whole (which it is in the Son 2:1), and the convallaria majalis was the lily of the valleys, then that would mean the people of ISHaRaAL cannot reproduce with each other (!).
Fleur de Lis Now in Fashion
The Fleur de Lis motif has recently made a come back in worldly fashion, and may have a double meaning: 1) to prepare for the world for the Anti-MaSHICH who is a member of the UK royal family who use the Fleur de Lis in their heraldry), and 2) to remind the remnant that their husband IEUESHUO is waiting at the door. The pattern tartan has become fashionable lately, in the same degree, since the UK royals like to wear tartan.
The Tudor Rose and Fleur de Lis are Paleo Hebrew symbols. The Tudor Rose of England is the Rose of Sharon, and the Fleur de Lis of Europe is the Lily of the Valleys. These two scripTURal flowers represent the people of ISHaRaAL, and have been carried down over the ages by their descendants from the time of King SHaLaME (Solomon). The Rose of Sharon is actually most likely hibiscus syriacus and not a rose. The Lily of the Valleys is most likely lilium candidum (the madonna lily).
Also the Fleur de Lis is a much better candidate than the Tudor Rose for the SHUSHaNaT E OMaQIM (Lily of the Valleys) in the Song of SHaLaME 2:1.

Extra #1: Inscription at Mt Karkom, Israel is Not the Oldest Star of David
This 2006 article that an inscription at Mt Karkom in Israel is the earliest Star of David is highly likely mistaken. This is because the lilium candidum which the star represents is particularly triangular from front on. The Ancient Hebrews were no dummies. They knew how to draw triangles. The glyph looks more like a sun, from sun worshippers. The original photos of the glyphs are here on Flickr.
