Red Roses are the Symbol of Love
It is best to learn the history of why red roses are the symbol of romance and love. From the Western culture, it has been believed that this type of flower was created by the goddess of love, Aphrodite. According to the legend, her tears and her lover, Adonis’, blood watered the ground from where the red roses grew. It was then a symbol of love until death.
Modern Age Symbolism
In the modern age era, flowers continued to be used for courtship, dating and for the expression of emotions, especially love and romance. The practice of sending roses, depending on color and designs, had been used to convey messages. For lovers, red roses in beautiful hand bouquets were meant and intended for intimacy.
Meaning of the Red Color of a Rose
The relation and association of red roses to romance and love go beyond tradition, cultures, and beliefs. Red roses are also linked to intimacy and passionate emotions because of their deeper meaning and symbolism. According to the professional florist, the color red and roses both refer to affection, love, and admiration. Bright red roses symbolize romance while burgundy and crimson roses mean undying love. A budding red rose, on the other hand, refers to a type of love that is still blooming or at a young stage.
