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