In Hebrew, the anemone is "כלנית מצויה" (Calanit metzouya). "Calanit" comes from the Hebrew word "Cala כלה" which means "bride", "metzouya" means "common." The calanit earned its name because of its beauty and majesty, evoking a bride on her wedding day.
The Anemone coronaria grows wild all over Israel and Jordan. During the British Mandate for Palestine, British soldiers were nicknamed "Kalaniyot" for their red berets.
