The coat of arms of the Gebirgsjägerbrigade 23..

The English name "Snowdon" comes from the Old English snaw dun, meaning "snow hill", as Snowdon often has a covering of snow..The environment of Snowdon, particularly its rare plants, has led to its designation as a national nature reserve..In addition to plants that are widespread in Snowdonia, Snowdon is home to some plants rarely found elsewhere in Britain.. These include the "Snowdon lily", Gagea serotina, which is also found in the Alps and in North America..It was originally known as mountain spiderwort..It became a protected species in the UK in 1975 under the Conservation of Wild Creatures and Wild Plants Act..

Edward & Shane Smith (VICE on HBO: Season 4, Episode 13)..

The edelweiss flower was the symbol of Wehrmacht and Waffen-SS Gebirgsjäger, or mountain rangers, worn as a metal pin on the left side of the mountain cap, on the band of the service dress cap, and as a patch on the right sleeve.. It is still the symbol of the mountain brigade in the German army today..Gebirgsjäger are the light infantry part of the alpine or mountain troops (Gebirgstruppe) of Germany & Austria.. The word Jäger (meaning "hunter" or "huntsman") is a characteristic term used for light-infantry or light-infantryman in German-speaking military context..A soldier is allowed to wear the edelweiß on the forage cap after he has completed the "Edelweißmarsch"...The World War II Luftwaffe unit, Kampfgeschwader 51 (51st Bomber Wing) was known as the Edelweiss Wing... you have any idea who you’re dealing with?.. This is the country that stood up alone to the might of the Luftwaffe, air force of the greatest evil mankind has ever known’..Of course, some of them do come to me eventually, for while heaven may be closed I am always open, even on Christmas..Do you believe that you are a part of God's plan?..
