Legend has it that a knight and his lady-love were walking along a river. They stop for the knight to pick some flowers for his love, growing along the bank. Reaching a little too far to pick the flowers, he falls in to the river. As the weight of his armor quickly pulls him under, he throws the flowers to his beloved and shouts: "Forget-me-not!"
Well, this is one version of several Forget-Me-Not legends, anyway. Sad, but romantic, don't you think?
