watched| A report on the Damask rose: a plant that has characterized Syria for thousands of years

Al-Qahera News Channel presented a report on the Damascene rose, titled “The Damascene Rose…a plant that has distinguished Syria for thousands of years.”

The report said: “During the harvest season, farmers participate with their families in hand-picking roses, then collect small roses to be used as a drink, as women prepare rose syrup, jam and sweets extracted from them, while pharmacists sell dried roses for their many medicinal benefits.”

He added, “The Damascene rose began in Syria and moved from it to various other countries, as Roman soldiers transported it to Britain in the century AD, and spread its cultivation in their settlements as a house plant.”

He continued: «Later on, the Damascene rose became a symbol of the royal families in Britain, and in the ninth century AD, the Syrian communities in Andalusia introduced and developed the Damascene rose, as they made oils from it and spread through it the use of resources in all Andalusian sweets, just as the smell of resources became the official scent of the councils of kings and princes, And the red damask rose became a political symbol for Seville and Granada and an essential element in the design of flamenco clothing.

The report stated: “In the twelfth century, Count Robert de Pré transferred the rose to France, and from there it spread to the rest of the world. The Damascene rose has a long history of cultural exchange, which prompted UNESCO to include it on the list of intangible cultural heritage of humanity, and it is the same Damascene rose that he mentioned. The English poet Shakespeare said: (I have seen the Damascus rose), as mentioned by the great poet Nizar Qabbani, saying: “I came to you from the history of the Damascene rose, which summarizes the history of perfume .. I am your Damascene rose, O people of the Levant).”
