Your Weekly Reference Question

Did you know that Milwaukee has an official flower?

It's true. Milwaukee's official flower is the geranium. It was selected in 1966. Prior to that, the official flower was the nasturtium, and was selected in 1923.

By contrast, the state's official flower is the wood violet.
