5 Funeral Flowers & Their Meanings, ,

Flowers at a funeral can be more than beautiful decorations or gifts. The floral arrangements are associated with meanings and emotions that symbolize the feelings that go hand-in-hand with funeral services. Here are a few common funeral flowers and what they convey.

What Funeral Flowers Represent

1. Carnations

Red carnations show admiration for the lost loved one, making them a beautiful and meaningful addition to a funeral setting. Pink blooms convey that the loved one will never be forgotten, and this color is often used for a loving gift to a grieving family or friend.

2. Lilies

Lilies are one of the most common flowers used in funeral services. A pure white lily symbolizes the return of the lost loved one’s innocence, and the stargazer variation is also used to represent sympathy.

3. Roses

Deep, dark red roses create a gorgeous dichotomy between symbolizing grief and love, while yellow ones are a bright representation of friendship and show a powerful bond between the giver and receiver.

4. Tulips

Although they’re more vibrant than other flowers, tulips represent new beginnings and bright futures. It can be difficult for someone to move on after the loss of a loved one, and these flowers show that there’s light at the end of sadness.

5. Gladiola

This bloom is usually arranged in sprays for funeral services, and they’re grown in several colors. These funeral flowers have several meanings that represent positive qualities of a loved one, such as strength of character, integrity, and sincerity.
