Ramonda nathaliae, also known as Natalie's Ramonda, is a species of flower in the genus Ramonda that grows in Serbia[where?] and Macedonia, mostly in the east of both countries. The flower is well known on the Nidze mountain near Bitola in Macedonia, where at Kajmakchalan peak, in the World War I battle of Kajmakchalan, the Serbian Army suffered a loss of nearly 5,000 soldiers before they were victorious against the Bulgarian Army.[relevant? ]
The flower was named after the Serbian queen Natalija Obrenovic. It is also known as the phoenix flower, referring to the resurrection of the Serbian state from the destruction during World War I.
