In India, marigold flowers are everywhere, especially during the Diwali celebrations.

Deepavali is a festival celebrating the light that defeats the darkness. For auspicious reasons, Indians like to decorate houses with delightful marigolds, making torans and dedicate them to Hindu Gods. It may be hard for you to imagine that the kind of flower originated from Mexico has only existed in India for about 350 years yet hold an important position in this country.

Diwali Marigold

Marigolds are often paired with mango leaves to make Diwali torans, the orange flowers and green leaves are bright and harmonious under the sunshine. In addition to being used to decorate houses and other buildings and streets, marigold torans are often placed around the Diwali diyas, festive food and Diwali gifts to create strong festive atmosphere.

Also known as the "herb of the sun," marigolds represent passion and even creativity. The unique fragrance of these flowers helps to improve people's mood and resist stress. Marigold's orange and yellow colors are considered mascots for new beginnings and important events in life. Marigold is also said to have been called "Mary's gold", from the fact that early Christians placed flowers on Mary's altar instead of using coins as offerings.

Deepavali Marigold flowers

The flower language of marigold is "healthy longevity, sweet love, youth forever." Marigold is an edible flower, an annual herb that is ideal for extracting the pure natural yellow pigment.

Diwali is the most important festival for Indians. It is one of the essential etiquettes for relatives and friends to send gifts to each other. If you know any Indian friends or clients, you may try to express your congrats by sending them a Diwali gift hamper.
