The singer rang in 365 days of the self-love anthem, which is still the most-streamed song on Spotify in a single week
On Saturday, the singer, 31, commemorated the anniversary on Instagram with a couple of black-and-white photos of herself and, fittingly, a flower.
In one photo, she holds the prop and in the other, she poses with it on top of her head.
Along with the pics, Cyrus shared a short but sweet message about the track, writing, “One year ago today ‘Flowers’ started making people happy & that makes me happy.”
“Love you. Thank you,” she added before signing off the message with, “XO MC.”
“Flowers” — in which Cyrus asserts her independence, crooning “I can buy myself flowers” and “I can take myself dancing” — was the first single for Endless Summer Vacation, which the singer dubbed a love letter to Los Angeles.
After it hit streaming platforms, “Flowers” struck a chord with listeners, spending eight weeks at the top of the U.S. Billboard charts and skyrocketing to the top of Spotify’s charts — and breaking a record in the process.
The track became the most-streamed song in a single week in the app’s history, beating out the previous record-holder, BTS' "Butter," and prompting Cyrus to thank both Spotify and her “amazing fans" on social media.
Following its release, fans of Cyrus speculated that the self-love anthem contains several references to her relationship with ex-husband Liam Hemsworth.
While speaking with British Vogue last June, Cyrus shrugged off these rumors, telling the magazine, “I never need to be a master at the craft of tricking an audience. It will set itself on fire all by itself.”

Elsewhere in the interview, the singer revealed that the upbeat song almost looked very different.
"I wrote it in a really different way,” Cyrus told British Vogue. “The chorus was originally, ‘I can buy myself flowers, write my name in the sand, but I can’t love me better than you can.’”
“It used to be more, like, 1950s,” she continued. “The saddest song. Like, ‘Sure, I can be my own lover, but you’re so much better.’”
Added Cyrus: “The song is a little fake it till you make it. Which I’m a big fan of.”
