Facebook Flowers Project

I saw a beautiful tulip flowers posted on my friend's FB timeline. It was posted with a message,

"My intention is to fill up Facebook with flowers to break the saturation of negative images and videos. If you like this post, I will choose a flower for you."

Since i like her post so i was among her circles to spread this flowers images on my timeline and others (our FB friends). So i choose Pink Rose because i am a fan of rose flower despite of my name is Rose.

I didn't really put so much attention to the meaning of every Rose's flowers before until i search for the meaning of Pink Rose for replying my friend FB post. I found it in Reader's Digest  and it quite interesting what each of the colour means. Here i shared what each rose colours means.

Yellow: Friendship, Joy, Get Well 
Throughout history, yellow has been closely associated with the sun, making these roses excellent for cheering people up. Yellow roses send a message of appreciation and platonic love without the romantic subtext of other colors. The color represents feelings of joy and delight.

Pink: Love, Gratitude, Appreciation 
Pink carries with it the connotation of grace and elegance, as well as sweetness and poetic romance. Dark pink roses are symbolic of gratitude and appreciation, and are a traditional way to say thanks. Light pink roses are associated with gentleness and admiration, and can also be used as an expression of sympathy.

White: Purity, Innocence, Sympathy, Spirituality 
Early tradition used white roses as a symbol for true love, an association which would later become the hallmark of the red rose. Also known as the bridal rose, the white rose is a traditional wedding flower. In this sense, white represents unity, virtue, and the pureness of a new love. White roses are also associated with honor and reverence, which makes them a fitting memorial for a departed loved one.

So now, i think i know which rose to be brought for certain occasions. Its funny when i don't know about this i just simply choose my favourite one which is pink. :)

Lots of love, 
Pink Rose
