Olive (Olea europaea)  and bay (Laurus nobilis) placed on the memorial to the almost 30 people who were killed, and the 100 people injured, when an anarchist threw a bomb, disguised as a bunch of flowers, at the wedding procession of King Alfonso XIII of Spain and Victoria Eugenie of Battenberg, on 31 May 1906.
