Ramonda nathaliae, also known as Natalie's Ramonda, is a species of flowering plant in the genus Ramonda that grows in Serbia[where?] and Macedonia, mostly in the east of both[citation needed] countries. The flower is considered a symbol of the Serbian Army's struggle during World War I.[2] The plant was scientifically described in 1884 from specimens growing around Niš, by Sava Petrović and Josif Pančić, who named it after Queen Natalija Obrenović.[3]
