The True Meaning of Rose Colors

While every flower has a wonderful story to tell, the rose has always been a symbol of love and passion.

The Red Rose: A True Symbol of Love and Romance

One of the most universal symbols of love is the red rose. This incredibly beautiful flower is known to represent true love and affection. In fact, in the 18th century, a special rose language evolved as a means of communication between lovers who were forced to keep their relationship a secret from society. The red rose has even been incorporated into famous works of art from classical poetry to ancient paintings, and it remains to be an inspiration to lovers across numerous cultures.

Red roses can make meaningful gifts for expressing emotions during an anniversary. As the most popular type of rose purchased around Valentine’s Day, roses are a great symbol of love in new relationship and budding romances. For married couples, roses often symbolize a message of commitment and everlasting love.
