2. White Roses
White roses are said to be associated with not only Virgin Mary, but also the Greek goddess Aphrodite, who was born from the ocean. It was penned by Greek poet that the seam foam that dripped from the Goddess’ body turned into white roses. With the backstories in mind, white roses bear a meaning of purity, spirituality and new beginnings. And more commonly symbolises a soul-deep love in marriage. So those who have tied the knot, white roses are fitting for Valentine’s!
