The goal of most lovers on Valentine’s Day is to communicate love to their significant other. For these blessed people, Valentine’s Day is a much anticipated holiday that brings fulfillment and joy. Individuals in romantic relationships often seek to find the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for their loved one, and more often than not that gift ends up being a bouquet of roses. Depending upon their color, roses can communicate different types and intensities of love.
What color of roses communicates romantic love? Red, just as you probably guessed. Traditionally, red roses have symbolized passion, energy, and deep love. Red roses are best reserved for communicating intimate, romantic love. Given to someone you see in a platonic light, red roses could send a message you don’t intend, so be careful who you gift this type of flower to!
Whether or not you are in a romantic relationship, you may want to send roses to a dearly loved friend or family member on Valentine’s Day. No matter what you want to communicate, be it purity, friendship, admiration, etc., specific colors of roses can help you get your message across:
White — Love (especially of a spiritual nature), humility, reverence, and purity
Pink — Innocence, affection, and understanding
Yellow — “Presents a ‘welcome back’ sentiment,” gladness, joy, and friendship
For people who long to be in romantic relationships but simply haven’t found that special someone, Valentine’s Day can be an unhappy time. Everything these individuals see on February 14th reminds them that their desires are going unfulfilled. You can make Valentine’s Day special for these people by surprising them with roses. Since you want to avoid communicating a romantic message to such individuals, try sending them roses in the following colors:
Light pink — Gentility, grace, friendship, and admiration
Dark pink — Appreciation, gratitude, thankfulness
Peach — Sincerity, sympathy, modesty, and gratitude
It is the rare person who does not associate roses with Valentine’s Day, and for good reason: These classic flowers are excellent communicators of love in its various forms.
