The Meaning, Symbolism and History of Red Roses
Red roses have captured the minds and hearts of lovers across the globe for generations. Giving a single stem or bunch of red roses on your anniversary, first date, Valentine’s Day or just because is the perfect way to say, “I love you” when words are not enough.
The red rose has been associated with love and passion for thousands of years. In Western culture, the significance of the red rose dates back to Greek mythology and the belief that the red rose was created by Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love. Legend has it that the flower grew from the ground watered with Aphrodite’s tears and the blood of her ill-fated lover Adonis.
In Christianity, the red rose became the symbol of the Virgin Mary dating back to the third century AD. At that time, Saint Ambrose believed the Garden of Eden was full of thornless roses, which gained their thorns after the fall and symbolized Original Sin. Because of this, the Virgin Mary is often referred to as the “rose without thorns.”
To this day, giving a red rose remains the perfect way to express romantic love. The shade of red is significant, with deep red roses thought to convey deep emotions, a bright red rose represents romance and burgundy is often used to send a message where your love is (as yet) unrequited. The giving of a red rosebud is also significant, symbolizing young love, innocence, purity and unpretentious beauty.
Meaning of the Number of Red Roses
The number of red Roses in a bouquet also signifies and symbolizes a special meaning.

The Blue Rose Facts
The dream of the blue rose challenged the rose breeders. Their ambition was awakened, many wanted to breed this longed-for rose. Over the centuries, attempts have been made repeatedly to achieve a blue rose color by crossing existing rose varieties. But success was always missing. The hoped-for blue was at best a purple, not more.
In the Far East, the demand for blue roses is especially high because of the fairytale. They are often given away for engagement and wedding and are meant to bring love to the couple forever. Just like in a fairy tale.
In Asia, the love message of the blue rose is clear: it stands for the perfect and fulfilled love. In the west, however, the blue rose has attributed another meaning. Perhaps because the naturally growing blue rose does not exist and is just a dream, it has also become a symbol of unfulfilled longing.
What Does the Blue Rose Signify?
- Blue rose has been a fragmentation of the wishful, imaginative and free pieces of mind. Its quest has been going on for centuries, and several florists are still on with their endeavor. In some cultures, the blue rose is analogized to the Holy Grail (chalice used by Christ at the Last Supper) thus, is considered the same in the world of roses.
- Given its non-existence and the longing for its presence in the world of flora, the blue rose symbolizes unattainableness. It represents something that is destined to remain as a dream, and as a never-to-be-fulfilled wish.
- Some people regard the blue rose as an exhibition of inner feelings of love at first sight. It is also attributed as a synonym for an impossible or unrequited love. And there are some cultures that associate the blue rose with royal blood; regal majesty and splendor.
- Accomplishing the impossible, fighting all odds, and new beginnings can also be represented by the blue rose. When we choose a path that has an untold, unexplained beginning, our heart gets crowded with feelings that are too deep to be described in words. Such excitement can also be expressed through a blue rose.
- Given the fact that the blue rose is a result of fabrication and not a true product of nature, it may also signify the power of being manipulative.
- A blue rose or a bouquet of blue roses serves as a suitable gift for occasions like birthdays, journeys, a venture, etc., as they symbolize new beginnings in life. On the other hand, it may not be an appropriate present for someone you wish to begin a relationship with, unless the other person is aware of its meaning.
- The meaning of the blue rose could also be in sync with the quote which goes, “some doors should never be opened.”
