But how did red roses become the symbol of love in the modern Western world? It began with the word rose being the word for pink or red in ancient Roman and Greek languages, and symbolically linked the rose with the goddess of love, Venus (Roman) and Aphrodite (Greek). It was common practice to place a rose at the door when confidential matters were being discussed, as a means to keep others from disrupting. The phrase sub rosa, or "under the rose" means to keep a secret, and certainly this private symbolism began to develop more romantic undertones. In St. Ambrose’s legend of the rose without thorns that grew in the Garden of Eden, he is referring to the idea that the Virgin Mary of Christianity was born without original sin. The contrast of the beauty of the rose with the defensive thorns have popularized the rose as a symbol of balance in Tarot reading, and a two-sided narrative in Shakespearean plays.
Among all colored roses, the red rose ultimately symbolizes sacrafice, immortal love, health, and passion. These red roses will be yours to share in this moment of passion, and a symbol of the upcoming experience of a lifetime.
