FLORA. The Roman goddess of flowers and spring, particularly of wheat and other crops. Flora was the twin sister to Fauna, the goddess of animals and wildlife. Her name, Flora, survives in the botanical term for the plant life in a particular region. Most people recognise the names of the twin goddesses as they are used in the context of flora and fauna to mean the plant and animal life.  Flora was depicted in art wearing a crown of flowers and her image was engraved on Roman coins.
