Read and inform yourself about the various springtime flowers that are traditionally used in the celebration of the sacred Easter festival.

LilyA popular symbol of the Easter festival, the white lily is held as the traditional Easter Flower and represents love and hope. The single flower stem originating from a bulb represents the resurrection of Christ three days after his apparent death by crucifixion. Legend has it that white lilies were grown at the place where drops of blood fell from Jesus Christ's body. Some Catholic nations regard white lilies as the symbol of the purity and divinity of Jesus Christ and dedicate them to his mother, Virgin Mary. This is the reason why churches are decorated with white lilies during Easter.

Gifting white lilies to someone during this time indicates that you are very happy to be acquainted with the recipient. Giving yellow lilies to a person represents your request or advice to him/her to "live for the moment".

The lovely daisies, much like white lilies, have a special significance for Easter celebrations. The sweet-smelling daisies symbolize purity and placidness - two qualities highlighted by the spirit of the occasion.

AzaleaA beautiful spring flower, the azalea is famous for its elegant color and appearance and forms a symbol of different emotions like temperance and passion. Gifting it to someone on Easter indicates you want the recipient to take good care of himself/herself for your sake.

DaffodilThe daffodil is regarded as one of the most popular Easter flowers and has a romantic connection. Gifting a bunch of daffodils mean you hold that person as the only true love in your life and regard him/her highly. It can also indicate your unrequited love for that person. In another way it can simply indicate your respect for the person and that you feel very happy to be with him/her.

ChrysanthemumGenerally, all flowers of this variety are said to be the symbols of cheerfulness except the yellow one which represents slighted love. The chrysanthemum as an Easter gift indicates that the recipient is precious for you and you wish him/her greater happiness in life. A white chrysanthemum represents truthfulness.

TulipsThe beautiful tulip flower is considered to be a messenger of passion and love. A favorite Easter flower for lovers, it is used to convey the feelings of the heart to a special someone. While the red tulip proclaims "I Love You", tulips of any color mean "Our Love Is Perfect". A varicolored assortment of tulips, generally given to a female lover, means "Your eyes are beautiful". Giving a yellow tulip to someone means you are "hopelessly in love" with that person.

HyacinthFamous for its sweet fragrance, the hyacinth in general stands for "comeliness". However, different colors of the flower have different implications. A purple hyacinth means "please forgive me" while a white one symbolizes the recipient is lovely or that you will pray for that person; a yellow hyacinth indicates jealousy whereas a pink or red hyacinth says "Let's play!".
