Front: There is a legend, that at the time of the Crucifixion of Christ the dogwood had been the size of the oak and other timber trees. So strong that it was chosen as the beams for the Cross. To be used for such a cruel purpose greatly distressed the tree, and Jesus, nailed up it, sensed this, and took pity and said to it: “Because of your sorrow for My suffering, never again shall the dogwood tree grow large enough to be used for such a purpose. Henceforth

Back: you shall be slender, bent and twisted. Your blossoms shall be in the form of a cross…two long and two short petals, and in the center of the outer edge of each petal there shall be nail prints, brown with rust and stained with blood, and in the center of the flower shall be a crown of thorns, and all who see will remember.”

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” ~ John 3:16
