In France, people adore to give lilies, and there is something behind that, because a lily is the official symbol of the French monarchy. As for the color, in this country it is not recommended to present yellow flowers, which are considered to be a sign of infidelity. An exception to this rule is sunny sunflowers. Giving yellow flowers in Europe is often accompanied with the prejudices, but a few have the strength to resist the charming daffodils and fragrant mimosa.
Around the world, the red roses are considered to be a symbol of a passionate love, so men give them to their beloved.
