“With these flowers we express the cordial relations Bulgarians have towards Slovaks,” said Bulgarian Ambassador to Slovakia's Jordanka Chobanova, as quoted by the TASR newswire.

Roses are the symbol of Bulgaria. Moreover, Damascene rose oil is used to produce rose water, perfumes, confections, honey and liquors. In the food industry, it is used for flavourings and colour.

Moreover, the rose has natural factors active in protection from sunlight, while in homeopathy, it is used to treat hay fever, TASR reported.
