    Can anyone identify the plant running across the front and top of this bank note please? It's the only one not added to the information.

        If you scroll down you come to a piece about the suggested flowers, it starts with this.

        "Thanks a lot to Olga, from the city of Guy, Orenburg Region, Russia, for ideas about the plants on banknote.

        There is an assumption, that, on the banknote, on the left side is Motherless, either cardiaca or five-bladed"

        Thanks again, but it's the plant running halfway across the top of the note I'm trying to identify. :)

        It looks a little like a stylised drawing of a maidenhair fern?

        Pic below taken from.....100 Schilling, Austria

        5f2b213fdbf882.79345287-original.jpg I believe it is a fern.
        It will be a fern found in Austria...maybe a rare /special one.
        There are 100's so I may be miles out...maybe Woodsia alpina.

        "woodsia alpina" - Google Search
        ................................................................

        P.S. I have so say I disagree with the id of the plant on the left of that note.
        The note shows a flower with 2 flowers per node.opposite small leaves
        Not flowers all round the stem.
        I would go as far as to say that it is miles out!
        See below.

        Quote from your link.....

        "Thanks a lot to Olga, from the city of Guy, Orenburg Region, Russia, for ideas about the plants on banknote.

        There is an assumption, that, on the banknote, on the left side is Motherless, either cardiaca or five-bladed.

        Leonurus cardiaca, known as motherwort, is an herbaceous perennial plant in the mint family, Lamiaceae. Other common names include throw-wort, lion's ear, and lion's tail. Lion's tail also being a common name for Leonotis leonurus, and lion's ear, a common name for Leonotis nepetifolia. Originally from Central Asia and southeastern Europe, it is now found worldwide, spread largely due to its use as a herbal remedy.

        Motherwort five-bladed, Motherwort shaggy (lat. Leonúrus quinquelobátus) is a perennial herbaceous plant of the genus Motherwort (Leonurus) of the family Lamiaceae, or Sponge (Labiatae). Widely used as a medicinal plant."

          Thank you all for your replies. :dbgrtmb: I think Silver Surfer has probably hit the nail on the head with Woodsia Alpina.

          It's interesting that you challenge the identity of the plant on the left side Silver Surfer. I tend to agree with you, but the only other website I can find with this banknote on has given the same identification as 'Olga'. Perhaps they have both used the same source to name it.
