Chrysanthemum in Seruni

I took this picture at Seruni Hotel in Cisarua. I just found out later that Seruni is indeed the Indonesian name for Chrysanthemum. I thought it was only Krisan. So this is Seruni, my dear friends!

Seruni is apparently Japanese national flower. It is called Kikuka. The symbol of this flower often appears in flags, crests, traditional uniforms (kimono used by imperial family), etc. The emperor uses this flower as his official seal and his throne is called a chrysanthemum throne. Funny though. When I was there, I saw more roses than this flower in all cities that I visited.

Update: A friend of mine said that these flowers are probably Gerbera LOL
