Pink Carnations 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.
