These flowers are visual analogies for a central object and offshoots. The series example uses the flowers to illustrate management structures of a company. The circle in the center of each framework is scalable, which enables you to create the desired "relationship" between the center object and the offshoots. A small center indicates minimal management interaction and great authority within the departments.
Other visual analogies that can be illustrated with the flowers are ideas that "blossom" into being, multiple entities surrounding or protecting a central entity, different numbers or sizes of petals that indicate growth stemming from the center object, etc.
Refer to the tutorial for additional uses and formatting techniques.
