[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is an Anemone pavonina (Peacock anemone) or it is an Anemone coronaria (Poppy anemone, Spanish marigold, "dağ lalesi" in Turkish, "Calanit" in Hebrew, "Shaqa'iq An-Nu'man" in Arabic).
But I think it is the Peacock anemone. These are species of flowering plants in the genus Anemone. Greek anemōnē means "daughter of the windĒ.
Both are native to the Mediterranean region and are growing on Lesvos.

It is difficult to see the differences between the two species.
Yiannis: If the bracts below the flower are entire its A. panonina, if they are dissected then its A, coronaria.
Sorry, I can't control this.
