Language of flowers
The language of flowers or floriography has long roots in history. It was used as a secret form of communication, especially during the early years in Europe, when it was dangerous to express one's opinions and feelings openly. Each flower had its own meaning, and by combining different flowers you could convey complex messages.
|The language of flowers was popularized during the Victorian era in England, when it became part of good etiquette to know what different flowers symbolized. It was also used to express feelings and thoughts that were taboo in the strict social morality of the time.|
Today, the language of flowers is no longer an important part of everyday communication, but it is still popular in the form of flower arrangements and gifts. Some of the most popular flowers and their meanings include roses (love), daisies (happiness), carnations (fidelity) and tulips (love of another human being).
It is important to note that the meaning of different flowers can vary between cultures and regions, but the basic symbols are often the same. The language of flowers continues to inspire art, poetry and literature, and continues to be an important part of human cultural history.
