Hello June, I was in Australia last year and came across something like this called Waratahs. https://www.rbgsyd.nsw.gov.au/Plants/Gardening/Growing-Waratahs

Have looked at these and they are of the protea family . I have yet to find one that looks exactly like my photo but seemingly there are different cultivated varieties . The warpath is the symbol used as the emblem for NSW Australia . You learn something everyday . Fascinating !
