What does a white lily symbolize?
Lilies have a long and illustrious past, symbolizing purity, motherhood, and rebirth since the days of the Ancient Greeks. Because they symbolize rebirth, lilies make hopeful and peaceful white funeral flowers. Different colored lilies have different sentiments associated with them:
White lilies: purity, motherhood, rebirth
Red liles: passionate love
Orange lilies: wealth and prosperity
Yellow: fun, love, and springtime
Pink: happiness and abundance
Whatever the occasion, there’s often a lily that can send just the message you need.
When is it appropriate to gift white lilies?
The white lily flower is perfect for formal occasions.
