In Roman and German folklore, the linden tree is considered ""the tree of lovers"" and Polish folklore says that its wood provides good protection against the evil eye and lightning. In Greek mythology, the nymph Philyra, stolen by the god Cronos who appeared to him in the form of a horse, gave birth to the centaur Chiron. Overwhelmed, she prayed to the gods not to abandon her among mortals. They accepted her request and turned her into a linden flower.
