flower (フラワ) is a Japanese VOCALOID initially developed and distributed by the YAMAHA Corporation, and was created in collaboration with Gynoid Co., Ltd.. The product name is VFlower (ブイフラワ) and she was released in May 2014 for the VOCALOID3 engine. Her voice provider has never been revealed. Her update to the VOCALOID4 engine was solely developed by Gynoid and released in July 2015.[3][4]

In July 2020, a voicebank was confirmed to be in the works for the new CeVIO AI voice synthesis engine.[5][6] This voicebank was later revealed to be Ci flower.[7].


According to her official website, flower is described as a 'kuudere'.


Originally, the VOCALOID's name was written as "flower" while the software was listed as "v flower". It is not uncommon for "v flower" to be used to refer to both character and software by fans.

The name "flower" is based on the wish of her "blooming like a flower" in VOCALOID.[8]

The "V" in the product name "v flower" simply means "VOCALOID".

Her Mobile VOCALOID Editor release is known as "v for flower" and is the only release with a different name for the app.


flower's box art illustration was done by Yamako while the character design was done by Rocoru. Both artists are members of HoneyWorks, the circle who made flower's first demo. Her clothing appears to have a Gothic theme, with her outfit possessing traditional Gothic characteristics.

flower's V4 design was initially drawn in July 2014 by the artist, Miwasiba. The appearance was done as fanart and was a "shota" version of flower.[9] The official Twitter account for flower noted that the VOCALOID4 design was the "short-haired" or stamen version of flower while the original VOCALOID3 design was the "long-haired" or pistil version and that both reflect the "perfect flower".[10][11] The Twitter account also stated that the change of hairstyle did not change her nature,[12] with Miwasiba confirming that flower is 'still a girl' on the official VOCALOID Facebook and reference sheets despite adopting a "shota" design.[13][14]

In April 2014, flower was promoted through a HoneyWorks original song, "イノコリ先生 (Inokori Sensei)". The character rights were owned by Gynoid Co., Ltd. despite being released before the company was fully established in August 2014.


The following covers the VOCALOID software, for future releases see CeVIO releases.

v flower
flower's "v flower" vocal is regarded as a vocal that has an androgynous tone, meaning that it has a lack of feminine or masculine traits. It can therefore be used for both male and female roles in music. Her vocal is most compatible with genres such as rock music and favours faster tempos over slow.
flower - Talk
This is a talk vocal for Flower released for Gynoid Talk.[16]
