In this post I want to convey and together address the theme of the colorful world of flower language and we will explain the meaning of each of the types of flowers and their colors.
Roses, tulips, gerberas, lilies – they are all beautiful in their own way. Tied to a colorful bouquet we are delightd with all its different colors and shapes. But already each one alone, can express something very special. If you know the little ABC of flower language, with a little practice you will always know when to give what flower to whom. Of course, we don’t want you to learn this particular language and then leave it at that. We will explain the meaning of each flower color and show you the different statements you can make with certain flowers.
Love and passion: Red flowers make hearts beat faster
Red is generally regarded as the color of love. The classic bouquet for lovers therefore consists of red roses. But the red carnations are also a sign of love and infatuation. By the way: The darker the red tone, the deeper the feelings.
Did you know that? Although often presumed to be the opposite, red is still considered today as a masculine color. Not only love is connected to it, but also strength and aggression.
Pink shows affection – but in moderation
Pink flowers can also symbolize infatuation. They radiate romance without being intrusive or clearly defining feelings, as red flowers would, for example. Pink flowers can also be given to a friend or simply as a gesture of love to a special person.
Wat says the yellow color in the language of flowers.
The rays of the sun caress our faces, the sky is blue and we feel free and carefree: these thoughts can cause the yellow color in us. We automatically associate them with the sun and therefore also with summer. It’s not for nothing that we prefer to wear bright yellow suits in the warm season. They give us energy and spread a positive mood. Yellow flowers have a similar effect. You’re a nice stain of color. White beds or yellow tulips always convey a good mood. You feel a lot better when you see beautiful yellow sunflowers, don’t you? That’s why yellow flowers are always a great gift.
Orange flowers give us energy
Orange has a yellow-like effect. It usually has a vitalizing effect on us and gives us a new strength. However, orange also radiates youth and freshness. Strong color tone also creates a good mood. Therefore, with orange blossoms you can give pleasure to almost everyone. Especially for birthdays, this color catches the eye and not only delights the recipient.
As mysterious as the vast sea — that’s the blue color
Although celestial tones can be perceived as cold, blue is not a meaningless color. Blue flowers, such as don’t forget them or cornflower flowers, are synonymous with romance, loyalty and durability. At the same time, however, blue also symbolizes something mysterious, freedom and infinity. The latter is probably the case, because we have to think directly about an infinite blue sky when we see the color. You do too, don’t you?
A touch of mysticism: Why violet is so special
The violet color also has something mysterious, even a slightly spiritual note. Violet is often associated with mysticism and fantasy. Do you want to give flowers that speak a unique language of flowers? So, for example, purple with its sweet fragrance would be a great choice. Because not only the flowers themselves represent tenderness, but also the violet color symbolizes above all cordiality and warmth. Therefore, a bouquet of violet flowers is best suited for people close to it.
A fully blank bouquet – pure and elegant
We all know white as the color of innocence. But did you also know that color, which is not really a color at all, is also synonymous with purity and elegance? A beautiful bouquet of white flowers can also express admiration and gratitude. While most white flower bouquets are the bride’s most important accessory, white flowers can also be gifted to friends and family. White flowers, such as roses or lilies, are a very honest and profound gift. In combination with other colors in a beautiful bouquet, the white flowers provide great contrasts.
The importance of flower colors around the world:
The meanings of the colors collected here relate mainly to the Western interpretations with which we have grown up in Europe.

The symbolism of color can be very different in some countries, so the language of flowers always depends on the respective country.
