Although the Puerto Rican Flamboyant tree is not the island's national tree, it is one of the most beautiful and recognizable trees across the island.
They are colorful, and very majestic. Hailing from Madagascar these exotic trees have adapted to it's
natural environment on the island.
"El flamboyán" in Spanish is also a familiar Puerto Rican symbol. You will see it in many paintings, drawings, and calendars.
