Rose Symbolism

For ages, the rose has been used as a symbol of different things in many societies. First of all, the name "rose" itself literally means "pink or red" in several languages.

In many ancient cultures, the rose was a sacred flower, reserved for goddesses, such as Venus, Isis and Aphrodite.

This flower even made its way into the legal language. To this day, the Latin phrase sub rosa (literally, "under the rose") denotes a secret, or secret negotiations. The saying derives from the Roman practice of placing a wild rose on the door of a room where secret/confidential matters were being discussed.

The rose also has religious meaning as it is often used as a symbol of the Virgin Mary. Early Christians identified the five petals of the rose with the five wounds of Christ, and the red rose was adopted as symbolizing the blood of Christian martyrs.

In modern cultures, roses still represent important symbolism (including love, honor, faith, beauty, balance, passion, wisdom, intrigue, devotion, sensuality, timelessness), and you can read more about that here.
