After reading Bleach, I was inspired to make this thread, as you know each Squad has a flower with meaning (ex.Squad 7-Iris-Courage) so here is a list for the meanings of flowers, which one(s) represent you most?: 
 

 

~God Almighty first planted a garden; and indeed,
it is the purest of all human pleasures~
~Sir Francis Beacon~

   The origin of the language of flowers pre-dates Victorian times. It was started in Constantinople in the 1600s, and brought to England in 1716 by Lady Mary Wortley Montagu. The first flower dictionary was written in 1819 in Paris, by Charlotte de la Tour.
A Victorian lady, Miss Corruthers of Inverness, wrote a book on the language of flowers in 1879 and her book became the source for flower symbolism both in England and the United States.
Flowers are a special gift from God.....a world without flowers would be dull and drab. Flowers have been a source of beauty, joy, peace, love and inspiration throughout the ages. Whatever the occassion, marriage, birth, anniversary, birthday, illness, death, festival ...it's always expressed with flowers !

NEGATIVE MEANINGS

The meanings attached to flowers are not always positive. A bouquet of flowers can bring a hidden message from the giver to the receiver. Giving a bouquet of tulips mean ~a declaration of love~ But if the tulips are presented with their stems up, it means rejection ! Flowers presented upright, have a positive meaning but if presented upside down, their meaning is opposite. If the ribbons are tied to the left, the meaning refers to the giver; the right refers to the recipient. Flowers were also used to answer questions. If they were handed over with the right hand, the answer was "yes"; with the left hand, "no".
Red roses mean "I love you", but how do you say "I hate you" with flowers ? Basil or orange lilies are the answer !!!
