The Language of Flowers/ Flower Meanings and Symbolism

Receiving and Sending Flowers is an ancient tradition. Even in the Medieval times, people used to send flowers as gifts to their loved ones. By mid 1700s symbolic meanings were attached with flowers which served a great way of expressing feelings for the otherwise unexpressive people of the Victorian era. This trend took root when French and English travelers brought back books from Turkey on the etiquette of sending and receiving flowers according to their symbolic meaning.

The Victorian Society adopted this form of expression of emotions very quickly. Great details were now attached to all aspects of the flower being sent as a gift: Its size, colour, condition, accompanying flowers, the position of a specific flower in a bouquet, even the way a flower bouquet was accepted described specific meanings and contributed to the message being delivered by the flowers. It went on to the extent that if a flower was presented upside down, it signified a meaning opposite to the one usually attributed to it. Similarly the hand used to receive the flower also held significance as to whether the message and hence feelings are being accepted or rejected. The recognizable scent of a particular flower carried by a scented handkerchief also signified a unique meaning.
