June 26

Nach einer alten Volkssage, lange vor der Romantik, findet jemand zufällig eine blaue Wunderblume; durch sie erlangt er Zugang zu verborgenen Schätzen.
Seit Novalis' Romanfragment »Heinrich von Ofterdingen« ist »die blaue Blume« zum Symbol der romantischen Poesie und ihrer Sehnsucht nach dem Unendlichen geworden.

From lyrik online

According to an old folk tale, long before the romantic period, whoever finds a blue magic flower perchance will gain access to hidden treasure.
Since the novel fragment »Heinrich von Ofterdingen« by Novalis, the blue flower has become the symbol of romantic poetry and the longing after the infinite.
