Another version of the White Rose name

Even while I was reading it, I asked the people standing around what the title “The White Rose” could possibly mean. If I recall correctly, my brother said that during the French revolution, the exiled aristocracy used a white rose as a symbol on their flags.

A few days later, I was talking to my brother once again about this leaflet. When I asked him who he thought the author of the leaflet could possibly be, he said it was not a good thing to ask about the writer [of the leaflet], because in so doing, the writer could be endangered.
