The influence of the Sahara and consequent desertification did not prevent Cabo Verde's flora from remaining alive and with its own species. Indeed, there are endemic plants with rare beauty whose form was shaped by the action of a harsh natural environment.

The idiosyncrasy of the Cabo Verdean people is also reflected in the flora, with emphasis on the names given to plants, as they are almost always related to the latter's practical application, be it the treatment of some diseases, or due to popular superstitions.

The resistance of the flora also symbolizes the people's resistance to adverse natural conditions.

For this reason, Banco de Cabo Verde chose the beautiful series of coins that are here presented, which includes the Turtle.
