What Flowers Represent Peace?

1. Lavender

Lavender is often associated with peace and tranquility due to its soothing scent.

It's one of the most well-known flowers that symbolise peace.

Lavender has an aroma that helps you destress and brings some peace to a busy day.

It's also used in relaxing aromatherapy treatments.

Plus, the beautiful blooms are enough to make your day seem a whole lot brighter.
The peace and accord associated with lavender create a great vibe for a bouquet.

And these beautiful blooms are perfect for quirky natural floral creations like our design below.

Lavender traditionally blooms from June to September in the UK and is harvested in late July.

So, it's ideal for a summer wedding where you want to reflect the peaceful harmony of nature in your celebrations.

2. Peace Lily

The name says it all with the peace lily.

It's one of our favourite flowers that symbolise peace.

The white blossoms of the flowers also represent innocence and harmony, while the leaves indicate resilience and strength.
These lilies were first associated with peace because they reminded travelers of the white flags associated with surrender or ending the war.

The meaning of these flowers makes them perfect for settling a dispute.

So, if you've had a stupid fight with a friend, why not buy them some peace lily blooms as a way of fixing the problem?

These flowers that symbolise peace are also a welcome addition to contemporary floral displays.

Peace lilies usually flower in the spring or the beginning of summer.

So, they're a perfect summer birthday gift for someone you want to make amends with or even for a friend you've grown distant from who you want to grow closer to again.

3. White Rose

As far back as Victorian times, white roses were given as gifts to symbolise love, peace, and an unbreakable bond.

They're still regarded as one of the flowers that symbolise peace today.

These stunning blooms also symbolise innocence and loyalty.

So, they're a popular choice as a wedding flower.

We love how breathtaking pure white roses are and how they have an aura of peace around them.

So, we use them in our luxury floral creations, such as this 200 white roses bouquet.

The beauty of a peony's flowers and its soft fragrance combine to instill a peaceful calming feeling.

5. White Poppy

White poppies are one of the most popular flowers that symbolise peace.

They stand for the belief that killing is not the only way to resolve conflicts and that war is a bad thing.

These flowers first became prominent following World War I as a way of saying "never again."
Although conflicts still happen globally, the message of peace without violence that the white poppy conveys still exists.

Poppy flowers in general are also a symbol of renewal, peace, and calmness.

Poppies usually bloom in June and July.

So, they're a great choice for summer celebrations, especially as part of a luxurious white and green theme like the one we created, shown below.

If your aim is to bring style and a peaceful vibe to your event, including white poppies is a good idea.

Their blooms are beautiful, and we love their associated symbolism.

6. Violet

The violet's association with peace, devotion, and healing dates back as far as Ancient Rome.

Romans believed that violets brought peace to the afterlife.

Of course, they also create a peaceful environment in your current life.

And, they're associated with mental clarity, which we all need to improve from time to time.

As well as its association with peace, the violet has also come to symbolise faithfulness, everlasting love, and remembrance.

Violets have different blooming periods, between February and May, depending on the variety involved.

Their blooms are blue-purple, pink, yellow, or white and have five petals.

7. Apple Blossom

When apple blossoms bloom in spring and early summer, they bring an association with peace and fruitfulness.

As well as beautiful and delicate white and pink shades.
In addition to its connection with peace, the apple blossom symbolises rebirth and fertility.

So, these blossoms are an apt addition to a wedding bouquet, when a couple is starting a new life.

Including them in this way could also indicate a wish to bring new lives into the world in the future.

We love including blossoms in hand-tied bouquets and boutonnieres like the example below.

8. Lotus Flower

Buddhists believe the lotus flower represents peace, inner calmness, and wholeness.

This lovely flower can be seen as allowing any negativity to flow through you without changing your position.

This makes conflict less likely and brings overall peace to your life.

The pink lotus is especially associated with peace, but we think you'll agree that white lotus flowers also have a calm and serene quality.

The hyacinth has long been associated with peace and is the flower of Apollo, the Greek god of goodness.

So, its blooms are a positive addition to your life.

Hyacinths bloom in a variety of colours including white, cream, pink, rose, lavender, blue, deep purple, and red.
