Strelitzia reginae flower is often called the Bird-of-Paradise flower due to its similarity to Paradisaea raggiana (a bird belonging to bird-of-paradise family).

From Strelitzia reginae Redouté, P.J., Les Liliacées, vol. 2: t. 78 (1805-1816) and “Red Plumed (Count Raggi’s Bird of Paradise). Paradisaeidae Apolla Raggiana” by Raymond Harris Ching.
