Vanda Miss Joaquim. It is Singapore´s national flower. Any other country has a hybrid flower as national flower. This orquid is a cross between the Malayan Vanda hookeriana and the Burmese Vanda teres. It has different colours, which go from pink and violet to orange. Its scent is as warm and nice as orchids´.
