Pink Carnation Flowers 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.

About Pink Carnations: Pink carnations have the most symbolic and historical significance. According to Christian legend, carnations first appeared on Earth as Jesus carried the Cross and The Virgin Mary shed tea at Jesus' plight and carnation sprang up from where her tears fell. Thus, the pink carnation became the symbol of a mother's undying love, and in 1907 was chosen by emblem of "Mother's Day," now observed in the United States and Canada on the second Sunday in May. A red carnation may be worn if one's mother is alive, and a white one if she has died.
