There is one special flower that almost everybody loves. Meet the Queen of the Flowers: the rose. The majestic rose owes this title to its global popularity as the prettiest girl in the class. A flower of which all the different colours have their own special meaning. So wherever and whoever you are, there’s always a suitable rose for you.
Colours and shapes
Red, white, yellow, pink, purple, orange and green. Bicoloured or multi-coloured. Large, small, short stem, long stem. When you’re bursting with romance, you soon have a real first world problem, since there are so many roses to choose from. Besides that, every year dozens of new varieties are added to the variety of roses. On some, the rose’s heart is even green. This ‘grass heart’ is actually the base growing through the flower. A very unique type of rose if you ask us!
Symbolism of the rose
The heart-shaped petals represent love and trust. The thorns of the rose indicate that love is not all about roses. Red roses in particular are inextricably linked to love, but did you know that every colour has its own meaning?
- Red: love and respect.
- White: true love, purity, dignity, chastity.
- Pink: happiness, gratitude, virtue.
- Orange: longing, appreciation, sympathy.
- Yellow: intimate friendship, solidarity.
Different combinations of coloured roses and combinations with other flowers also have a meaning. For example, a white and pink rose combined express the wish to always be together. Roses in a bouquet symbolise gratitude, and a single rose in a large bouquet says, “you’re the person I love and you’re the one for me!”
The Greeks, Romans and Egyptians discovered the beauty of the romantic rose many thousand years ago. We had to wait until the 16th century for the rose to actually come to us. Luckily it was worth waiting for!
