long time ago, people thought that all your emotions were held in your heart, especially love. Today, even though we know that our emotions come from our brain, we still use the heart as a symbol of love.


oses are the best-known symbol of beauty and love. Most people know that red roses mean "I love you." A dozen roses certainly sends a big message on Valentine's Day!

Did you know that roses in other colors have meaning too? 

Red and white roses together means unity.

Pink roses mean grace and gentility.

Yellow roses symbolize joy. 

Orange or coral roses communicate your desire. 

Burgundy roses are a compliment to your sweetheart's unconscious beauty. 

Sweetheart roses are for couples who like nicknames, as they mean darling, dear, or honey.

because it goes to your first love. 

A Gardenia is for the scared or the shy.

Violets express your affection.


oves are very unusual in the animal world. They remain with the same partner all of their lives. Most animals go from partner to

partner, but not doves. For this reason, doves are symbols of loyalty and love on Valentine's Day.
