The custom of giving flowers has been around for thousands of years. There’s plenty of evidence to show this tradition was around in ancient China, Greece and Egypt. Back then, it was thought that flowers could express individual emotions- something which is still the case today. Greek mythology is also filled with gods and goddesses that are represented by flowers.
Sending flowers has always been a meaningful way to show sympathy, especially for someone who has suffered a death.
Lilies are traditionally associated with this kind of event, as they suggest the soul of the deceased returning to a state of innocence. Roses, meanwhile, are the ultimate symbol of spirituality and purity. Chrysanthemums represent optimism and joy, and are therefore wonderful for giving hope for the future.
