Easter is just around the corner and if you’re like many who celebrate this religious holiday, you’re likely looking for a lovely flower bouquet to accompany your celebratory tradition. Did you know that there are meanings behind many of your favourite Easter flowers? Even outside of the Christian tradition and the resurrection of Jesus, Easter symbolises spring and rebirth and may have also had connections to the Anglo-Saxon goddess of spring and fertility, Eostre. Since then, spring flowers from around the world have taken root in the holiday to help shape the Easter story and tradition that we know today.

The lily, in Christianity, is traditionally associated with the purity and innocence of Christ. The lily has further religious significance as it is mentioned in other sections of the New Testament. The Lily of the Valley is also often referred to as ‘Mary’s Tears’ as it symbolises the purity of the Virgin Mary and the Advent of Christ.

Tulips, like the daisy, are another iconic flower of spring. White tulips symbolise forgiveness, which is a prominent theme for Christians during Easter.

The iris, while most notably purple can also come in a variety of other colours. It’s a popular Easter flower as it symbolises the sufferings or the Passion of the Christ as well his resurrection and is commonly used during Easter or Lent by Christians. The petals of the iris are said to symbolize the three virtues: faith, valor, and wisdom.
