The Meaning Behind The Color Of The Rose

This Valentine’s Day, or any day for that matter, make sure the rose you are giving conveys the message you desire. It may seem a little crazy to complicate something as pure and simple as giving roses, but the symbolism of the color of rose you are giving makes a big difference in the meaning. Keep this guide close to make sure the rose or flower you give has a meaning consistent with the message you want to convey.


If your loved one tells you they don’t want anything for Valentine’s Day, don’t believe it. Almost 200 million roses are produced for giving on Valentine’s Day.

The traditional red rose - Says you are passionately in love with them. The meaning of a dozen red roses – a simple way to ask them to be yours. Give one red rose, and you provide the most beautiful and romantic gift, love at first sight or you are still the one for me.

Pink roses – The pink rose describes admiration, grace, and sweetness.

White roses – Often used for weddings because they signify new beginnings. White is one of the purest colors representing purity and innocence.

Yellow roses - This bright and cheery rose lets someone know the happiness they bring you and your friendship is strong.

Peach roses – These are an excellent choice for saying thank you.

Orange roses – Can you see the burning flame in this color? Are you burning with passion for someone right now? Let them know it with some orange roses.

Hopefully, this information helps you provide the correct message with your next gift of roses. Roses or flowers are simple,  inexpensive, meaningful gifts and we often underestimate their power.
