Vanda "Ms Agnes Joaquim" the national flower of Singapore.

Singapore is the only country to have a hybrid as her national flower. Vanda Miss Joaquim is the first registered plant hybrid from Singapore. A park, the Vanda Miss Joaquim Park, and several roads have been named after our national flower, including Vanda Drive and Vanda Crescent. Research has shown that the parents of Vanda Miss Joaquim, Vanda teres and Vanda hookeriana should actually be in the genus Papilionanthe , instead of Vanda . Thus, the scientific names of these flowers are now Papilionanthe teres and Papilionanthe hookeriana . The scientific name of our national flower has also followed suit, and is now Papilionanthe Miss Joaquim. However, its common name continues to be Vanda Miss Joaquim.
