Aesop's fable about the jay and the peacocks states "It is not only fine feather's that make fine bird's" - the Jacobite significance of this is simply that it is not the crown that makes the true King. The significance of the Passionflower in catholicism is simple, it represents stages of Jesus' suffering (The Passion of Jesus), the Jacobite cause was inexorably linked with catholicism and the majority of supporters were of the faith.
