When is Rose Day 2024?

Celebrated on February 7th every year, Rose Day kick-starts Valentine’s Week. Let's get to know more about this special day, which is Rose Day.

What Does Each Rose Color Mean on Rose Day?

On this day, people present their loved ones with red, yellow, white, orange, or pink roses based on their feelings for them. The different colors of Valentine's roses represent different meanings, as follows. 

  • Red Roses: Traditionally, red roses symbolize love and romance. Red roses are also the most popular. If you are in love and want to let your beloved know about your feelings, it is an excellent idea to gift them red roses. The color red stands for romance, love, passion, and desire. Therefore, giving a red rose is the best way to express your love for them. Giving a red rose to your significant other is the most beautiful way of depicting your feelings and love for your beloved. The red roses represent feelings such as "I love you," "be mine," or "I like you," so take a deep breath and gift your beloved a red rose to express your feelings.   

  • Pink Roses: Pink roses stand for grace, admiration, joy, and gratitude. The pink roses are suitable for expressing your admiration, affection, and appreciation for a particular person. If you are more than a friend but not a lover, give your special companion a pink rose. If you are still waiting for a 'yes' from your partner, gift them pink roses to signify that you still love them. On the other hand, if you want to appreciate someone for what they have done for you, giving a pink rose is a good idea. These beautiful pink blooms are perfect for celebrating important people in your life. 

  • White Roses: The white rose symbolizes innocence, reverence, silence, purity, and spirituality. They also mark a new beginning or marriage, which is why they are best suited for newly-wedded couples. So, if you want to propose marriage to your beloved, gift them white roses, which will be an indication of wedding bells. White rosebuds also stand for girlhood. This is another reason why brides use white roses. White roses are more formal and have more to do with respect.

  • Yellow Roses: Yellow roses represent friendship, positivity, joy, and care. If you cherish a friendship, you can give a yellow rose to your friend to show your appreciation and love for them. A yellow rose is the best way of telling your friend that you are grateful for their presence in your life. Giving a yellow rose to someone is an excellent way to express purely platonic emotions. 

  • Orange Roses: Orange roses stand for passion, fascination, desire, and enthusiasm. If you have an intense desire for someone special, orange roses are the perfect gift for them. They also go very well if you want to deliver a passionate message to someone you have intense feelings for in your life. Additionally, orange roses are ideal if you're going to give them to someone you are proud of. 

Different colored roses are used to express the different phases and types of love. Be careful while choosing the color of the roses you present to your loved one so that you don't send them an incorrect message. Now that you know which color stands for what, make sure to profess your true feelings to your loved ones with a rose in hand this Rose Day 2024, and don't forget to wish them "Happy Rose Day!"
