THE MEANING BEHIND PURPLE FLOWERS

Purple flowers have a rich history as symbols of royalty and wealth. In ancient times, purple was a highly prized colour associated with gods and emperors. In Egypt, only the pharaoh’s family was permitted to wear purple. The Greeks dedicated lavender to Aphrodite, their deity of love. Christians reserved purple for priests’ vestments on somber occasions. In Thailand, purple flowers traditionally symbolise sorrow, yet The Victorians took the symbolism of purple flowers to a new level.

Deep purple blooms were sent as a message of adoration that was passionate and unattainable. Lilacs were given as a sign of new love and were often sent with an intimate letter or romantic poem. Today, purple flowers still send a message of love, and they are often sent to recognise successes and admiration.

For messages of sympathy, a traditional purple flower arrangement strikes the right note of dignity.
