The Meaning of Easter Flowers

31st Mar 2015

The holy Easter season celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ and is an occasion of great significance in the Christian calendar. For devout Christians, it is a time for prayers and religious observances as well as feasts and meeting with friends and extended members of their family. Seasonal flowers are integrally associated with the annual Easter festivities, used both in home decorations as well as for gifting purposes. Knowing about the different flowers used in Easter celebrations and the reasons for their usage, you will gain a deeper insight into the festival as well as some useful knowledge to gift the right flower to your loved ones.

A popular symbol of the Easter festival, the white lily is held as the traditional Easter Flower and represents love and hope. The single flower stem originating from a bulb represents the resurrection of Christ three days after his death by crucifixion. It is said that white lilies were grown at the place where drops of blood fell from Jesus Christ's body. This is the reason why churches are decorated with white lilies during Easter.

The lovely daisies, much like white lilies, have a special significance for Easter celebrations. The sweet-smelling daisies symbolize purity and placidness - two qualities highlighted by the spirit of the occasion.

The daffodil is regarded as one of the most popular Easter flowers and has a romantic connection. Gifting a bunch of daffodils mean you hold that person as the only true love in your life and regard him/her highly. It can also indicate your unrequited love for that person. In another way it can simply indicate your respect for the person and that you feel very happy to be with him/her.

The beautiful tulip flower is considered to be a messenger of passion and love. A favorite Easter flower for lovers, it is used to convey the feelings of the heart to a special someone. While the red tulip proclaims "I Love You", tulips of any color mean "Our Love Is Perfect". A varicolored assortment of tulips, generally given to a female lover, means "Your eyes are beautiful". Giving a yellow tulip to someone means you are "hopelessly in love" with that person.

Now that you know the meanings behind some of these beautiful Easter flowers you can gift them confidently!
