Symbolism of the Daisy Flower
In modern Paganism, daisies symbolize the sun just because they seem to appear like stars or suns.
In Victorian times, different species of daisies symbolized different things:
- Michaelmas daisy (Aster amellus) symbolizes a farewell or a departure.
- Gerber daises (those in the Gerbera genera) symbolize cheerfulness. They were often paired with ferns, which symbolize sincerity.
- English daisy (Bellis perennis) symbolizes innocence. They were often paired with primroses, which is a symbol for childhood and/or moss, which symbolized mother love.
What Does the Daisy Flower Mean?
At first, it can seem that there can be as many meanings for daisies as there are species of daisies. However, the most generally accepted meanings are:
- Innocence, especially with white daisies with yellow or pale centers.
- Purity – also shown by daisies that are as white as possible.
- New beginnings, which is why they are often found in bouquets for new mothers or as gifts for children.
- True love – because each daisy flower is really two flowers blended together in harmony.
- That the sender can keep a secret. Keeping a secret is one way a person can exhibit that they truly love another.
