What is the language of the flower?

Red Flower
“We humans speak many languages; flowers on the contrary speak only one language: The language of beauty!” Mehmet Murat ildan

As Mehmet Murat ildan says flowers speak only one language, the language of ‘Beauty’

But we the humans go one step ahead and start communicating with each other by using different flowers for different occasions.

Are you aware of FLORIOGRAPHY?

Floriography is the art of communicating our feelings through different flower types

It’s the language of the flowers of a different kind!! (this language is created by the great humans)

We are crazy and treat these Natures greatest creations with our typical behaviour.

Flowers were used to delivering ‘secret message’

Who among the humans invented this language for flowers?

My friend, I am as ignorant as you are.

Some say this language existed for thousands of years but was popularised in the Victorian era.

Each flower represented some aspect of life.

Floriography

Here a particular flower is used to express feelings or emotions for a particular situation.

Looks like one has to take the help of a florist.

I am not going into the names of flowers and what they represent but I give a broader classification.

There are

  • Flowers for celebration
  • Birth month flowers
  • Flowers representing gratitude
  • Some flowers used to express sympathy
  • Flowers for celebration
  • Flowers representing Love
  • Flowers representing friendship
  • The Colour of flowers has some symbolic importance
  • Flowers for mourning

What are your thoughts?

Do you use flowers blindly or you are very particular about the occasion?

Thank you for visiting my site.

Take care, my friend.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏
