Valentine day celebrations are incomplete without roses. Rose, also known as the flower of love, is one of the oldest flowers known to man. The word rose has a Latin origin, ‘rosa’ meaning red. A legend lies behind the origin of this flower. Rose was created by Chloris, the Greek goddess of flowers who created this flower by adding beauty, nectar, and scent to a dead nymph lying in the woods.

There is a lot of thought behind giving roses on Valentine’s Day. Valentine Day roses are an ideal gift since each rose type and color is associated with a special meaning pertaining to love. Hence it is unusual that it is one on the most dominant of all Valentine flowers. Discover the meanings of different roses in the following list before you decide on the appropriate one for your beloved.

  • Red roses denote romance and love. A red rosebud also means purity whereas a thorn less rose means love at first sight.
  • Apart from red ones, popular Valentine roses are purple, coral, and orange. Purple again signifies love at first sight. Coral and orange roses indicate want.
  • Yellow roses symbolize friendship and the joys associated with it.
  • Pink roses are the right choice if you want to express gratitude and appreciation. A lighter shade signifies sympathy.
  • White roses denote peace, purity, admiration, humility, and deep respect.
  • Peach may signify either sympathy or appreciation.
  • Black roses, though not suitable as a Valentine rose, have a positive as well as a negative interpretation. While some believe it to be a symbol of death and vengeance, others suggest it signifies the death of old habits, thus indicating a new beginning.
