Kalyna has great significance in Ukrainian folklore and has come to symbolize Ukraine itself. It has been seen also as representing a young and beautiful maiden, and her innocence. Young women used to plant the Kalyna on the grave of Cossack warriors fallen in battle.

It is very uncommon name, hardly ever used in Ukraine despite the fact than Kalyna (Viburnum opulus) actually is symbol of country.
