How Jacinthe & Demeter From Greek Mythology Came To Life

As you might know HYACINTHUS, in Greek mythology was a young man whose great beauty attracted both god Apollo, the god of light and sun, and god Zephyr, the god of the west wind, who both competed for Hyacinthos’ attention. One day as the three of them were playing, Apollo was teaching Hyacinthos how to throw a discus and Zephyr jealously, blew the discus back, hitting Hyacinthos with a strike on his head. Hyacinthos died and from the blood spilt on earth, a beautiful and very fragrant flower grew (the flower you see here) that Apollo named after him, hyacinth. The female name for Hyacinthos is Jacinthe [pronouncedzha-sant] and symbolises Beauty and Purity.
