7. Carnation


The origin of the flower's name is derived from the Latin word “carnis” because of the flower's pink color. Carnations are typically worn on Mother’s Day, Teacher’s Day, and St. Patrick’s Day, as well as used in weddings.

Similar to some of the other flowers in this list, the carnations have different meanings according to their colors: whites signify pure love and luck; light reds symbolize admiration; dark reds symbolize deep love and affection; and pinks are believed to have first appeared on Earth from the Virgin Mary’s tears – making the carnation the ultimate symbol of a mother’s undying love.
