Carnations – Meaning and Symbolism
Carnations are the birth flower for those born in January and also come in different shades with each one having a slightly different meaning. If you want to make sure you are sending the right message to your lady or a friend, pick pink carnations to send to your mum on Mother's Day as they symbolise Mother's love, send light red carnations to someone you admire, dark red carnations are for someone you are deeply in love with, same as with red roses. If you're sending white carnations, you are expressing pure love or you can also send them to wish someone a good luck. Beware of sending striped carnations as they symbolise regret or refusal. Similar with yellow carnations, although cheerful in nature they actually symbolise disappointment and dejection. Relatively new on the market are also green carnations which are usually sent on St Patrick's day. Don't be discouraged if you prefer carnations in a particular colour, even though you don't like the meaning, we are sure the recipient will admire and appreciate the gesture in itself, no matter what's the meaning behind the carnations bouquet. If you're worried about sending the right message, you can always use carnations in a mixed bouquet and that way they won't give the sole meaning to your gesture.
Same flowers can have different meanings in different cultures. Carnations are known as Mother's Day flowers, since the founder of the Mother's Day celebrations decided to choose this flower in white colour as a celebration of motherhood and parental bonds. If you're sending carnations flowers in France, be careful because they actually mean bad luck. There is an interesting use of carnations in Korea – they are used to predict woman's future. They place three carnations into their hair, and wait which one of those placed dies first. If it's the bottom one, the woman will have extremely hard life. If the top one dies first, then she will suffer during the end of her life and lastly, if the middle flower dies, her bad luck will only last until the end of her youth.
