The deigo, or tiger’s claw, was named the official flower of Okinawa in 1972. Deigo trees are normally in bloom around mid-April through May. Around that time, the red  flowers of the trees can be seen at places like Okinawa Comprehensive Athletic Park in Okinawa City, or Peace Memorial Park in Itoman City.
