In the foothill village lived in the neighborhood well done Ivan and the girl Maria. They were friends of sincerity, they minded in children's amusements, like light clouds floating over the mountains, their careless summers. And both did not notice how they became adults. Ivan looked at Marichka on one fine May day and felt that his heart was filled with a sweet foreboding of happiness.
Marichka felt the same way. The parents of the young lovers also saw that and rejoiced, admiring the coddled as a deer, well done and a red damsel. But hearing about that great love, an evil wizard who lived in a deep cave on the Montenegrin. And that evil spirit conceived to abduct Marichka. That evening, when the village was walking at the wedding of Ivan and Marichka, a black whirlwind flew in, tore off the roof of their house, And Marichka disappeared into that whirlwind. Disappeared, as was not her! Heartbroken Ivan rushed to search for his beloved. He walked in the fields for a long time, climbing on the highest cliffs, descending into deep caves, all called his beloved Marichka. And now the fellow came to that cave in which the evil wizard lived. In a voice full of longing and passion, Ivan called: - Marichka! Where are you, Marichka? It was I, your Ivan, who came to release you from captivity and take you to your home. Do you hear Marichka ?! Marichka heard that voice and rushed to run in the dark dungeons. The power of her love was so great that heavy stone doors opened before her. And now the two lovers met and fell into each other's arms. But to their misfortune, just at that time, an evil wizard returned to his home. Seeing Marichka in the arms of Ivan, he cried out in a terrible voice: - Hey, you, useless man! Want to take my due for the right of the stronger! You came for your death! So get on the last fight with me! Ivan grabbed Bartka from his belt and rushed to his offender. They fought for a long time over a deep cliff. And it is still unknown how that battle would end when Ivan, standing on the very edge of the cliff, would not turn to his Marichka. She stood pale and frightened, with all her heart longing for victory for her Ivan over an evil enemy. But when Ivan looked at Marichka, the wizard struck him with a treacherous blow in the back and laughed with an evil laugh, celebrating the victory. As Marichka saw the death of her Ivan, she rushed into the abyss, flew with a white swan after her beloved. They fell on the soil of the field of a man who lived far in the mountains. Fell on soft wheat, which began to spike. And a miracle happened: their bodies disappeared without a trace, and in that place a flower grew, painted in three colors: white, yellow and blue.
White color is a wedding sign, a sign of unity of two lovers; yellow - a sign of separation, eternal separation from life; blue - the color of the sky under which to grow and bloom this flower and tell people about great love. Noisy green cornfield. And in that quiet whisper, when it is good to listen, you can hear the conversation of two lovers. But they say that only he who carries the heat of love in his heart can understand the language.
