Official State Flower of New York The rose was designated as the official state flower of New York in 1955 (a rose of any color or combination of colors).

The rose is also our national flower; the state flower of Georgia is the Cherokee rose; and the wild prairie rose is the state flower of Iowa and North Dakota.  The rose has been around for about 35 million years and grows naturally throughout North America.  Roses are red, pink, white, or yellow and can have a wonderfully rich aroma.  The petals and rose hips are edible and have been used in medicines since ancient times.  Rose hips (the fruit of the rose which forms at base of the flower) are eaten in winter by wild birds and other animals. The rose has played an important role in myth, history, and poetry from ancient times to the present.

The state insect took nine years to become official. In 1980, fifth grader Kristina Savoca sent a letter – along with a petition bearing 152 signatures – to New York State Assemblyman Robert C. Wertz, urging him to introduce legislation designating the lady beetle as the official state insect. The proposal languished for a number of years, passing in the Assembly but not being considered in the Senate. Approval finally came in 1989, after Cornell University entomologists suggested that Wertz propose the nine-spotted lady beetle (Coccinella novemnotata, sometimes abbreviated to C-9) as the state insect because it was a native lady beetle.

The origin of the state motto dates back to 1784. During a tour of the state’s harbors, waterways, and fertile interior, George Washington referred to New York as the “Seat of Empire”. The term “The Big Apple” was coined by jazz musicians of the 1930s who used the slang expression “apple” when referring to any city.
