Cornflowers have a host of folklore surrounding them. Its genus name, Centaurea, is derived from Chiron, a centaur of Greek mythology who was revered for his knowledge of botany, herbs, and medicine. Also, according to Greek legend, the cornflower was a favorite of an admirer of the goddess Flora and its species name, Cyanus, was named after him. In the past, cornflowers were once worn on the lapels of young men in love. It was said that if the flower wilted quickly, then the love was not reciprocated.

The cornflower is the national flower of Estonia and a symbol of numerous European political parties and educational institutions.
