Lotus is a genus of dicotyledonous plants, the only representative of the Lotus family. The length of the plant, together with the underwater rhizome, reaches about 1.5 meters. In the water, the lotus forms dense thickets that completely cover the surface of the reservoir with dark large green leaves, which are covered with a small light bloom. With this plaque, the lotus constantly remains on the surface, its foliage and flowers remain dry. Lotus is a symbol of life and happiness. Since it rises out of the mud, having managed not to get dirty, it is almost everywhere a symbol of purity, perfection and beauty. In the cultures of Ancient India, Egypt, China and Japan, the lotus symbolizes fertility. In addition, it can symbolize the spiritual growth of a person and the ability of the soul to achieve divine perfection.
