Valentine’s Day Roses: The Queen of Flowers and Their Meanings

Red is the color that pops into one’s head when thinking of Valentine’s Day, followed closely by the image of red roses. For the most part, red is still seen as the symbol of love, and is commonly associated with romantic festivities.

The rose’s history has roots everywhere starting from Greek mythology where Aphrodite was scratched by a white rose, thus turning it red, to Roman mythology where Aphrodite became Venus and kept the rose as her symbol. The rose may have many origins but, as Shakespeare once said, "A rose by any other name would smell as sweet".

Roses are regal and powerful flowers, they have inspired poets, artists, and writers alike over the centuries. Roses for Valentine’s Day might always be the “obvious choice” but, there is a reason for it. They represent love and appreciation like no other.
