The custom of giving flowering greenery and decorating houses and churches with it unites believers from every continent (regardless of a confession). Definite plants which peculiar legends are connected with are chosen for congratulations very often. Charming flowers, the meaning of which is full of Christian symbolism, will adorn your Easter table and give you a wonderful mood.
Wonderful snow white lilies are the most popular Easter flowers. Lilies, cut or growing in a pot, are presented to relatives or close people. These beautiful fragrant flowers mean love, hope and purity. There is a myth: when Christ was crucified on a cross, lilies were growing where His blood was dropping. It is also believed that lily is the only plant that was not defiled by the fall of man.
They symbolize purification and innocence. A legend says that daisies appeared from Virgin Mary’s teardrop during Christ's crucifixion. The other one says: the Three Wise Men found Baby Jesus thanks to the flowers, that were growing around the stall (they resembled The star of Bethlehem).
Their colorful, cheerful buds resemble painted eggs. Wonderful spring tulips are associated with joy and love - they are presented for Easter and used for decoration.
Together with other spring bulbous plants they allude to the new life. However the flower's connection with Easter does not end there. According to a legend the first narcissus appeared in the Garden of Gethsemane to console Jesus. As narcissus blossom during the Lent, in England they are known as "Lenten lilies".
In the Christian art white narcissus are shown as the Virgin Mary's attribute.
It is another symbol of the reviving nature, sorrow and purity. Pink, soft yellow, and violet blooms could not fit Easter tradition more.
