Meanings of Flowers
In Victorian times, certain flowers had specific meanings because the flower selection was limited and people used more symbols and gestures to communicate than words. But today, with so many flower choices, there are no rules – it’s the sentiment that gives the gift its meaning. Your florist can help you send the right message. Many people assign their own personal meanings – a flower or color that might remind them of a special event or moment in their lives. For those interested in the historic meanings of flowers, the Society of American Florists has compiled this list from a variety of different sources:

Las flores siempre han transmitido significados para la gente. Los antiguos griegos usaban los mitos para explicar la creación de ciertas flores; los romanos coronaban a sus héroes con coronas de laurel como símbolo de honor. Shakespeare conocía las leyendas que rodeaban a las flores y las utilizó en sus obras sabiendo que sus lectores reconocerían su significado. En “The Language of Flowers” (El lenguaje de las flores), la autora Sheila Pickles describe cómo los victorianos transformaron la entrega de una flor en un arte, con diferentes variedades y colores de flores que adquirieron un nuevo significado.
