        The language of flowers has a long history. Around the 17th century, a book called Le Langage des Fleurs explained the meanings of 8,000 flowers. The language of flowers was also popular during the Victorian era, when it was believed that talking or expressing too much was uncivil. People like to send flowers to express their emotions to one another.

        Flowers' meanings change over time and across cultures. Each type of flower has its own meaning, even if they are the same type but have different colors. The number of flowers has its own meaning; for example, a rose symbolizes love and romance, whereas white roses represent pure love. One rose represents love at first sight, whereas twelve roses are used in marriage proposals to express the message I want you to be mine.

        Other flowers with appropriate meanings for Valentine's Day include sunflowers, which represent faith and dedicated love. Daisies represent honesty, lilies represent pure beauty, and iris flowers symbolize friendship.
