The Language of Flowers in Valentine’s Day

-A A +A

Saturday, February 14, 2015

HAVE you ever contemplated what each flower you receive or give this Valentine's Day signifies?

Nah, that flower is not just a flower. It denotes something beyond its visual aspect. Whether you give or receive flowers, it is about time you know how does each kind of blossom and its variety of color stand for. Read on to find out.

Roses – surely, you'll think of this bloom if you were asked what the most popular choice is for Valentine's Day. If someone gives you pink roses, it means he "admires or appreciates" you. If you get red roses, the person who gives it has a "passionate love" to you. Yellow roses symbolize "friendship" so be careful giving one to your lover because it might led to misinterpretation.


Next in line is tulip, one of the most well-regarded and cherished flowers around the world. Giving pink tulip to someone means you “care” about him.

Receiving red tulip, on the other hand, symbolizes that the person who gives it "declares his love" for you. If you have misunderstanding with a person in the past, it would be better to give white tulip, which means "forgiveness."

Other than roses and tulips, carnation, a fragrant cut flower is also common on Valentine's Day. Pink carnation reflects "gratitude" of the person who gives it to you. On the other hand, someone who sends you a white carnation means he "remembers" you.

Also, if you get aster, that means "contentment" while sunflower depicts "adoration."

These are just some of the flowers that have been given on Valentine's Day and it's a simple reminder what kind of flower you should give to a person.

Nevertheless, no matter what it means, it is more important that someone remembers you in that very special event. (Sunnex)
