Flower color meanings — a cheat-sheet guide

If you find there are just too many meanings for different flowers to keep in your head when visiting the local florist — or, let's face it, the grocery store on your way home from work — don't despair. There are some general rules about what the different COLOURS of flowers represent, which may be easier to remember...

  • Blue: While Light Blue is a symbol of anxiety over problems such as money and health, Turquoise can mean fulfilment for those with great intelligence.
  • Dark Red: Symbolises constancy, continuity and immortality.
  • Green:  Expresses joy and optimism.
  • Lilac: Represents a sincere love, without the need for anything in return. It can refer to the love felt for lovers, family or friends.
  • Orange: A colour that symbolizes the joy and satisfaction for a success already obtained. On a more sentimental note it may also represent a love that has already been consolidated and gratified.
  • Red: Too hot to handle, red is the expression of burning, passionate love, great courage and desire. But beware because it's also the symbol of anger.
  • Rose: The colour Rose (or pink) is a symbol of youth and expresses a new love or admiration.
  • Violet: Expresses feelings of modesty, generosity and humility. The ‘shrinking violet' refers to its symbol of insurmountable shyness.
  • White: Is the symbol of purity, innocence and modesty and expresses a sincere feeling. White can also be used when someone is waiting for news.
  • Yellow: Though commonly associated with unfaithfulness and treason, don't depair if you come home with yellow petals because it can also be the symbol of luxury, pride and success.
