NATIONAL COSTUME : “Magical Czech Linden Tree” by COSTUME DESIGNER: @craft_explosion_ & IDEA & CONCEPT & STYLED by @samdolceofficial The Linden tree, adored by the ancient Slavic nation, is the Czech national symbol. In addition to the many beautiful lindens planted as the national trees of the Republic, you can also see this type of wood species in many Czech galleries. It is very soft and has been amongst the most popular in Czech carving for centuries. A tea is traditionally made from the flowers, which has many medicinal effects that help in the fight against diseases. This magically benevolent symbol appears on the pin of the Czech president and the Czech state seal, but also on military uniforms and banknotes in our picturesque country, which is the heart of Europe. The Linden tree has been attributed a protective power since time immemorial, people in the Czech kingdom believed that it could ward off evil spirits. It was often planted near their home because it was believed that it would not be struck by lightning. The magical power of the linden appears in Czech legends and stories, and this celebrated magical national tree plays almost the main role in the famous Czech opera in The Lantern by Jirasek.
