In the Aztec language of NAHUATL, "XEMPA" (Dead) & "XOCHITL" (Flower). The spelling was changed in Castillian Spanish to 'Cempazuchil' for easier pronounciation. The traditional flower of Day of the Dead, the marigold represents the sun's rays. Because the sun is the origin of all living things, the marigold symbolizes that the deceased has not lost their place in the universe.
