Flower of the month: The Rose
Also known as the ‘Queen of the Flowers’.
THE ORIGIN OF THE ROSE
The Greeks, Romans and Egyptians discovered the beauty of the romantic rose many thousands of years ago. Since then, the popularity of the rose has grown non-stop, and new species are added every year.

The heart-shaped leaves stand for love and trust.
The majestic rose is also known as the ‘Queen of the Flowers’ and owes this title to its worldwide popularity as ’the most beautiful girl in the class’. The heart-shaped leaves stand for love and trust, and the thorns indicate that love is not always about roses. Red roses, in particular, are inextricably linked to love.
EVERY COLOUR HAS A DIFFERENT MEANING
A flower of which every colour has its own special meaning. So, wherever you are, there is always a suitable rose for you! White stands for real love and purity. Pink represents happiness, refinement and is a great way to say ’thank you’. Orange stands for excitement, admiration and sympathy. And yellow represents friendship and caring. Even the combination of colours or the combination with different flowers have a meaning.
