This cross stitch pattern is named after Kerstin Hesselgren, (1872-1962).

In 1921 Kerstin Hesselgren, together with Elisabeth Tamm, became the first women in the Swedish Riksdag. In the parliament Kerstin belonged to the Liberal Party, and attracted great attention when she brought new questions to the table. Issues such as women's education, women's right to government services - and with equal pay as men, permission to sex education and contraception, and reduction in penalties for abortion. Kerstin Hesselgren, was a pioneer in the promotion of gender equality in Sweden!

The cornflower has been the Swedish province of Östergötland´s county flower since 1908, and became a symbol of the suffragette movement that started there. Later, the cornflower has become a symbol for the Liberal Party - and it is with them that the flower is strongest associated with today.

This embroidery pattern is part of the Svarta Fårets collection.
