Doritaenopsis Aung San Suu Kyi

In 2009, the Singaporean Government honored the Burmese Prime Minister General Thein Sein by naming a new orchid “Dendrobium Thein Sein”. This lead to numerous protests, including one of the rare recorded protests on Singaporean ground.
In response, a new orchid hybid was named after the Burmese opposition politician and General Secretary of the National League for Democracy Aung San Suu Kyi. The orchid has been registered with the Royal Horticultural Society in London as "Doritaenopsis Aung San Suu Kyi". Doritaenopsis is an intergeneric hybrid between the orchid genera Doritis and Phalaenopsis.
