Comes with the following legend of the naming of ladybugs.
The legend of the ladybug comes from Europe during the Middle Ages, when swarms of insects attacked the crops, threatening Europe with starvation. Catholic farmers asked the Virgin Mary, Our Lady, to save them from this insect plague. In answer to their prayers, a cloud of small, black-spotted, red insects arrived, devoured the pests, and saved the crops. The grateful farmers named them “Our Lady’s Bugs,” which became “Ladybugs.” The red wings represent the Virgin Mary’s red cloak and the 14 black spots were thought to represent her seven joys and seven sorrows.
