The lotus was an important symbol for many cultures because it represented enlightenment or triumph. The lotus grows out of mud but blooms pure and untainted.

The Lotus tree (Greek: λωτός, lōtós) is a plant that occurs in stories from Greek and Roman mythology.

The Lotus tree is mentioned in Homer's Odyssey, the Lotus tree bore a fruit that caused a pleasant drowsiness and was the only food of an island people called the Lotophagi or Lotus-eaters.

In Ovid's Metamorphoses, the nymph Lotis was the beautiful daughter of Neptune, the god of water and the sea. In order to flee the violent attention of Priapus, she invoked the assistance of the gods, who answered her prayers by turning her into a Lotus tree. [noted -ed]
