Red Rose

"Oh, my luve's like a red, red rose,
That 's newly sprung in June;
Oh, my luve's like the melodie
That's sweetly played in tune."
-Robert Burns

From ages Red Rose as a metaphor of love and passion has bewitched each and every soul on the earth. As one of the most eternal symbols for love and admi ration, it's no surprise that red roses are among the most admired and evocative of all the flowers. The charisma of the red rose has been a source of immense inspiration for many throughout the ages. However, it is as the symbol for love that the red rose is most commonly recognized. A Red Rose encompasses the whole gamut of warm passions and desires.

Over the centuries, roses with varying shades of Red have expressed a wide range of heartfelt sentiments and feelings. True red signifies lover's rose and also stands for respect and courage. Red Rosebuds symbolize beauty, youth and a heart innocent of love. Amaranth Red stands for long standing desire where as a Cardinal red rose implies sublime desire. Carmine Red has long been associated with deceitful desire and Fiery Red with flames of passion.

In the Victorian-era various roses and their flower arrangements were used as means of communication. They were used as coded messages to express feelings which otherwise could not be spoken. The nuances of the "Language of flowers" are forgotten but red rose is still the symbol for love and romance. The modern red rose we are now familiar with was introduced to Europe from China in the 1800's. The color red itself has transcended from a primitive symbol for life into a popular metaphor for deep emotion. In Greek and Roman mythology the red rose was closely related to the goddess of love.

In many early cultures red roses were used as embellishments to decorate marriage ceremonies and they were often a part of traditional wedding attire. Through this age old practice, the red rose became known as a symbol for love and loyalty. With the norms of exchanging roses and other flowers as gifts of love came into prevalence, the red rose naturally became the flower of choice for conveying the strongest message of undying passion. This is an age old tradition that has endured to the present day.

A red rose is more than just a symbol of love and affection. A red rose is also a symbol of socialism. It is also used as a representation of the British and Irish Labor Parties, as well as by the French, Spanish, Portuguese, Norwegian, Danish, Swedish, Finnish, Brazilian, Dutch and European socialist parties. The symbol originates from the red rose used as a badge by the marchers in the May 1968 street protests in Paris.

Red roses are an ideal gift as they are the messengers of our innermost feelings, which words alone can't express. For a loved one on Valentine's Day, an anniversary or a birthday, a bouquet of red roses bring happiness to your loved ones and provide a long lasting fragrance, the fragrance of your true love and thoughtfulness does wonders. For the budding relationship, a red rose bouquet is a gesture symbolizing the beginning of romantic intentions. Even the simplicity of a single red rose can bring forth a heartfelt response. Whatever the occasion, red roses have a charm that is hard to resist.
