|Pink Carnation Flowers
The history behind pink carnations is rich, interesting and symbolic. Christian legend tells us that when Mary shed tears at Jesus’ dilemmas, where the tear fell there sprung a pink carnation. It is from this legend that pink carnations are symbolism of a mother’s undying love. Pink carnations will forever hold this importance thanks to this legend. And for this reason also, carnations are the official Mother’s Day flower – red and white carnations in particular. The receiver of a pink carnation bouquet will know that they are deeply loved.
