The Rozmberks - Masters of the Rose

The Rozmberks (Rosenbergs) were a family that ruled Bohemia in the Medieval period. They were known as Masters of the Rose and their emblem was the five petal rose.

We've mentioned the rose relation to red before - Rossi, Rosy, Russia, Rusalka and so on. In this case Rosicrucian and Rosy-Cross also spring to mind.

I also have a cool picture to go with this one as well. It looks like a medieval image, but it's actually from a wall-painting by the 19th century Czech painter Mikoláš Aleš. I like this image a lot <3

It's titled Lords of Rose.
