From classical architectural design, the rosette is a round, stylized flower design - the natural design of a botanical rosette.  It was seen in antiquity (as seen here, photographed at the Roman Basilica of St. Paul) as well as in Romanesque and Renaissance art.  The rosette is even sometimes used to decorate formal military awards and even some Swiss Guard uniforms.
