Flower Language: What Do Flowers You Send To Your Ukrainian Lady Mean
One of the most time honoured traditions of dating is sending a girl flowers. However, if you’re dating someone from another culture then it’s important to think about if symbolism is a strong part of their culture and what different types of flowers might mean to them. Symbolism is a big feature of Ukrainian culture, so if you’re hoping to buy your Ukrainian lady flowers you need to read this first.
Flowers You Can Send to Your Ukrainian Lady
Yellow flowers in general are a great choice to woo your Ukrainian lady – yellow symbolises friendship, joy and happiness. Sunflowers are actually a national symbol of Ukraine, representing the warmth and power of the sun.
Red and White Roses
Roses in general symbolise love and passion, but the colour you choose is important. If you want to symbolise love and passion then choose red. White roses are usually handed out on Mother’s Day in Ukraine. They symbolise the purity and strength of motherhood, so it might not be the best choice to give your Ukrainian lady on a first date!
Choose Carnations to Show Her Your Love
Carnations represent innocence, faithfulness, pure love and good luck. White carnations symbolise love and luck and light red signals admiration, but pink are the symbol of a mother’s love, so stay away from the pink carnations.
Impress Her with Tulips
Tulips are a symbol of spring and summer, but in Ukrainian culture they represent elegance and grace. If you’re looking for the perfect flowers to impress your Ukrainian lady then tulips are a great option – just pay attention to the colour you choose.
Gift Your Ukrainian Lady a Bouquet of Lilies
While lilies are usually seen as funeral flowers in British culture, but in Ukrainian culture they symbolise majesty, pride, wealth and purity. By giving lilies to your Ukrainian lady you’re saying “you’ve made my life complete”.
Other flowers also have meanings, but they’re more focused on joy or professional courtesy. If you’re not sure what message you want to send then daisies, irises and orchids are all “safe” options. An orchid is a particularly good option because it usually comes in a pot so it will last for years instead of a few weeks.
Flowers hold a lot of meaning in Ukrainian culture, but you don’t have to worry about getting it exactly right. Knowing the meaning the flowers you’re giving her is a bonus, but your Ukrainian lady will appreciate whatever flowers you give her.
