WHITE ROSES Purity and Innocence
White has always been a symbol of purity, innocence and in some cases, chastity, and for roses, it is no exception. For that reason, white roses are often given at weddings and other ceremonial occasions like christenings and graduations.
However, white roses can also be given as a sign of respect or remembrance. It is a way to say “I’m thinking of you,” making them the appropriate choice to send someone who is grieving the loss of a loved one.
