Valentine's day is fast approaching, and there is no better way to express love, gratitude, and romance, than with Red Roses. Single infinity roses come not only in red, but also in various colours that suit all occasions, events, and preferences. But, more extraordinary is that they are presented in elegant acrylic jewellery boxes, ideal for treasuring special memories for longer. So, when did this celebration begin, and why are Roses for Valentine's Day considered a must?
People believe that Saint Valentine used to be a Romanian priest that was imprisoned for supporting persecuted Christians. Others state that St Valentine would perform at clandestine Christian weddings, usually for soldiers prohibited from marrying. It is said that the Roman Emperor Claudius II forbade this so his army could grow. Legend has it that the saint would cut parchment in the shape of hearts and give them to the soldiers. That was done to remind the vows and God's love. Many say that this could be the reason for using hearts today. While many folklores surround the origin of this event, one that remains is the celebration of love that it symbolises. What role do flowers play in all of this, you ask?
The Origin of Valentine's Day Flowers
The custom of giving and receiving flowers on valentine's dates back to the 17th century. Roses were mainly used as Valentine's Day Flowers due to their characterisation of love and romance. However, the tradition goes back to giving gifts, where flowers were believed to send non-verbal messages. Send flowers to deliver your message, create a personalised present with a single eternal rose in 14 colours.
