The Meaning Of A Solitary Rose

Thursday, February 13th, 2014

Because a single rose is able to symbolize all manifestations of love, it is the flower of choice for most.

A single rose says it so much better!

This non-verbal language of a solitary rose translates into any language, and transcends all barriers. It’s also very useful for guys who often can’t find the right words to convey their love. πŸ™‚

Because…

  • A single rose can say “I Love You.”
  • A solitary rose can say “I’m Jealous.”
  • A single rose can say “I’m Sorry.”
  • One rose can say “It’s Over.”
  • A single rose can say “Thank You.”
  • A solitary rose can say “We’re Friends Forever.”
  • One rose can say “You Are Beautiful.”
  • A solitary rose can say “You are Pure.”
  • A single rose can say “You Bring Joy to My Life.”

… and much more!

Single Red Rose

But what do the different colors of a single rose mean?

  • Most people already know that a single red rose simply means “Love”.
  • One solitary yellow rose generally means dying love or platonic love. But in some countries it can also symbolize jealousy and infidelity, so watch out!
  • Get a blue rose to tell someone he/she is a mystery to you (“mysterious”).
  • A green rose conveys calm.
  • Guys, if you screw up, send a single white rose – it says “sorry”! But it can also mean innocence, purity, secrecy, friendship, reverence and humility.
  • If you can get your hands on one black rose*, it will tell the recipient that you have a slavish devotion for him/her (as a true black fresh rose is impossible to produce). But, be careful, as some people also use a black rose to send a message that a relationship is over!
  • A solitary burgundy rose tells the other party you find them very beautiful.
  • If you’d like to show your passion for your lover, get a single orange rose.
  • One yellow rose with red tips symbolizes friendship, or falling in love.
  • To show admiration or sympathy, give a light pink rose.
  • When you send someone a purple rose, it conveys protection (paternal/maternal love).
  • A solitary pink rose conveys grace and gentle feelings of love.
  • If you wish to thank someone, you can send one dark pink rose, as it symbolizes gratitude.

Tip: Always attach a card to your single rose, explaining the meaning behind it – just to be on the safe side. πŸ˜‰

*Often, fresh-cut roses may not be available in all the colors (particularly, black), so a good idea is to then give a single preserved rose or solitary sprayed novelty rose instead.
