|Bright Carnation Flowers
Carnations are an old plant with a long and rich history. Carnations have ties to Greek and Roman history, and they are also the symbol of the Portuguese Carnation Revolution. In 1974 when Portugal was going through a change in power, the revolutionaries did not enforce violence, instead the soldiers swapped bullets for carnations, and this marked the end of one regime. Bright carnations are therefore symbolic of hope and change. A bright carnation bouquet expresses an array of feelings as each different color carnation has its own individual meaning. Bright carnations can add flavor to any flower arrangement, or stand along elegantly.
