At anti-war protests and rallies for Ukraine across the glove in the month since the Russian invasion, participants have been carrying sunflower bouquets as a sign of support.
The sunflower planting movement was kicked off by a viral video posted on social media the first day of the invasion, featuring a Ukrainian grandmother swearing at a Russian soldier for "occupying" her country and attempting to hand him sunflower seeds. "Put the sunflower seeds in your pockets, please," she shouts at him. "You will lie down here with the seeds." Some translations of the conversation have her adding "and sunflowers will grow from your grave."
