After the Ascension of the Lord Ruler, the world had no flowers. However, Kelsier's wife, Mare, was fascinated by pre-Ascension times, and collected pictures of the old era. She held a piece of paper that had an image of a flower on it, which perplexed both Kelsier and Vin, who had never seen the strange plants.
Mare died and Kelsier kept the paper with the flower and used it as a symbol of hope.
”I decided that I’d see her dream fulﬁlled. I’d make a world where ﬂowers returned, a world with green plants, a world where no soot fell from the sky...." He trailed off, then sighed. "I know. I’m insane.—Kelsier to Vin, after showing her the picture of a Marewill flower.
Later, after Kelsier's death, the picture of the flower was passed onto Vin.
During the Final Ascension, Sazed used the image of the flower, along with other Larsta descriptions of the plants, to help restore the world from the damage of the Lord Ruler. He left the original image of Mare's flower to Spook in one of his books, which would later be called the Words of Founding.
