Why is the waratah important to nsw?
The Waratah flower is native only to a small section of the coast of New South Wales. Aborigines have used the nontoxic varieties as food, and it is an important food source to many honey eating birds. Its cultivation has made it popular garden plant. However, native growers are classified protected. New South Wales declared the waratah its official floral emblem in 1962. The plant has been admired by many for years, even as far back as 1793, when English botanist, Sir James Smith, described the waratah as, "The most magnificent plant..."

Overall, NSW are called "The Blues" in every sport, and in cricket it is used as their official name; as is the nickname, "Bluebaggers". Traditionally the NSW State flower is the Waratah, but generally only their rugby union team uses the name, "The Waratahs." In State-of-Origin rugby league they are called the "Cockroaches," which was originally derogatory, but now is used affectionately; though they generally use "The Blues" as as in every other sport.
