Say it with Flowers! Flowers and their Meaning |

Flowers are the perfect expression of nature. Delicate, colorful, perfumed, large and small, flowers bring joy and well-being to the recipient. That is why it is a perfect gift for any occasion, and even more so when we wish to express our feelings through them.

But, while they are all beautiful, flowers have different meanings. From the origin of the name of a flower to its distinctive features and mythology, flowers are infused with symbolism and meaning.

Hanakotoba is the Japanese name to associate certain flowers with different meanings. The term Floriography - defining the language of flowers - was coined in the Victorian era, and while some of the meanings may have been changing over time, the idea that through the symbolism of the flower we can express what we mean, it is still valid.

Beyond cultural meaning, it also depends on our mood, the personality and taste of the one to whom we wish to pay homage . It also depends on the colors and what the flower represents for the person. That is, many people like a specific type of flower or a certain color because it brings you pleasant memories, or simply because they feel identified with it. In this way, each person can attribute their own meaning to the flower.
