In addition, the ancient Greeks and Romans placed white lilies in the decoration of brides as a symbol of fertility. The Egyptians saw the lily as a symbol of life, and the Romans saw it as a symbol of hope. Archaeologists have found ornaments in the tombs of the pharaohs with white lilies. The earliest known record, however, was discovered in the early 20th century during excavations at the palace of King Minos in Knossos on the island of Crete.
Whether they are lilies, calla lilies, roses or chrysanthemums, white flowers always radiate grace, splendor and sophistication. However, white lilies are among the most elegant representatives of the flower world, which makes them especially preferred for formal occasions such as engagements, weddings as well as for funerals and memorial services.

The red lily often bends its head down. According to a legend, this flower was originally white. When Christ passed through the Garden of Gethsemane on his way to pray, the flowers bowed in awe. The lily itself knew it was exquisitely beautiful, with a powerful scent and wanted to be noticed by Christ as he walked through the garden. To its surprise and shame, he stopped and stared directly at its bloom. The lily flower was suddenly ashamed of its own pride and arrogance, blushed red, and bowed its head. As of this day, this is the way the red lily presents itself.
So, the red lily seems to be ashamed as it sends off summer and invites autumn to come. If we turn our backs on the symbolism, these flowers are constant in most bouquets for Halloween and Thanksgiving, but despite the traditional fall holidays, they can also be a great gift for any birthday at this time of year.

Together with the red and orange colors, the yellow one symbolizes the onset of the third season of the year, which captivates us with its charm. And since the lily usually blooms in spring to delight us until early autumn, many customers and botanists are aware that the last days to enjoy these beautiful flowers are in October. So, if you have an occasion to send your loved ones a bouquet of yellow lilies or just want to invite the fall into your home, order one of these magical flower arrangements.

And these flowers are lilies. Others believe that lilies were born from drops of breast milk of the goddess Hera, and others say that the cradle of Moses was located in a garden of lilies.In Ancient times, a lily flower was given to a beloved woman as a sign of love. Foreign envoys always offered this flower to the ruler as a sign of obedience and good wishes.
In addition, the Lily Cycle is a symbol of the resurrection, this is where lily’s connection with Easter comes from - a seemingly lifeless and ugly bulb is buried in the ground, and later reborn as a huge and beautiful white flower. Its snowy white color symbolizes the purity of Christ and the joy of the resurrection, while its trumpet shape symbolizes the trumpet of the angel Gabriel and the call for rebirth.
Yet the role of the lily in Christianity does not stop there. It is said that when Adam and Eve were expelled from the Garden of Eden, Eve repented and wept. From these tears grew lilies.
