Birth month flowers and their meaning

Flowers, like a lot of nature, are very often taken for granted; they are just there, and while we see them everywhere we go, we also send them to each other as a symbol of love or to say thank you.

Many people do not know that every month has a traditional flower to represent it, which are different according to each country. Here we will take a look at the English customary month flowers.


January – The Carnation: A symbol of love and distinction, the carnation is traditionally worn on Mother’s Day, Teacher’s Day and even St. Patrick’s Day, with green flowers.
