V convinces Mr. Creedy to bring him the High Chancellor by offering up himself in exchange. After V has Creedy promptly kill the Chancellor, Creedy then orders his men to kill V.V, having worn the armor breastplate from the suit of armor in the Shadow Gallery, survives multiple gunshots, and proceeds to kill all of Creedy's men, finally breaking Creedy's neck -- as promised. However, mortally wounded, V staggers back to Evey, only to die in her arms, finally at peace. Evey places his body on the London Underground Tram, surrounded by roses, just as Inspector Finch reaches the abandoned station. However, he has a revelation, and allows Evey to send the train carrying V, and several kilos of Semtex, to crash into parliament. Outside, the citizens of London are garbed in the Guy Fawkes masks and capes that V sent out earlier, and rapidly advancing towards the Parliament building. The military, now at a loss after Mr. Creedy's death, does not stop them. The explosive tram collides with the Parliament, and annihilates the structure, all while the propaganda speakers strewn throughout London triumphantly blare out Tchaikovsky's "1812 Overture". Evey and the Inspector watch the fantastic explosion, and Evey tells the inspector how V truly is an ideal, and can never truly die, as long as all of mankind longs for freedom.
Question: Was any explanation ever given for why V's signature flower was changed to the Scarlet Carson for the movie when in the graphic novel it's the Violet Carson (keeping in tone with his obsession with the letter V)? It doesn't seem to serve any plot significance so I'm rather puzzled why they felt a modification was necessary.
