Flower power wasn't invented by the hippies.
Way before Woodstock, people used flowers as tokens of love (and rejection) throughout history.
Different cultures and races have shared the same passion for flowers as a language of love. They knew flowers speak for the heart.
Much of the symbolism of flowers has come to us from the ancient civilisations of Egypt, Greece, Rome and China.
Local folklore, botanical publications and literature are other sources of flower imagery.
Victorians published dictionaries on botany based on these sources. The books explained the hidden meanings of flowers, plants and herbs. It became fashionable for folks to exchange flowers. They had found a way to avoid formality by declaring suppressed feelings and emotions through flowers.
Since then the practice of giving flowers has grown somewhat. St. Valentines Day, weddings, birthdays, anniversaries and funerals have become an orgy of flowers.
Flowers need light to grow. Like flowers, light has long symbolized life, innocence and hope. Light is the triumph over darkness.
