Interesting Fact: Many flowers have important symbolic meanings in Western culture.[28] The practice of assigning meanings to flowers is known as floriography. Some of the more common examples include:

  • Red roses are given as a symbol of love, beauty, and passion.[29]
  • Poppies are a symbol of consolation in time of death. In the United Kingdom, New Zealand, Australia and Canada, red poppies are worn to commemorate soldiers who have died in times of war.
  • Irises/Lily are used in burials as a symbol referring to “resurrection/life”. It is also associated with stars (sun) and its petals blooming/shining.
  • Daisies are a symbol of innocence.

  1. You may already know this, but using red poppies to remember the war dead was inspired by the poem “In Flanders Field,” which begins “In Flanders fields the poppies blow
    Between the crosses, row on row…” It was written by a Canadian military doctor and artillery commander, Major John McCrae, after the death of a comrade. The significance of the poppies is that they only grow in soil that has been recently turned up — as would happen in a cemetery.
