ABOUT THE PROJECT
Dam HaMaccabim is the national flower of Yom Hazikaron, Israel's Memorial Day.
According to legend, from every drop of Maccabean blood that fell to the ground, the red flower sprouted.
The blood of the Maccabees has seeped deep into the very fiber of our being. Spurred on by the legend, we have learned as a nation, to channel our bereavement into a culture of growth and
development, of bringing forth new life.
The Dam HaMaccabim Project aspires to perpetuate the memory of our fallen by filling the streets with people across the globe wearing these flowers in unity and in solidarity as a nation.
In English, the flower is called Red Everlasting as the flower, like the memory of our fallen, never fades.
