Lily flowers

.
Lilies are part of the genus Lilium, which is known as the group of “true lilies”. Lilium is a Latin term and was derived from the Greek term leirion, a word that traces back through numerous civilizations to one of the first words for flower. This shows the importance of the Lily flower through the centuries and millennia.
The lily is often associated with the story of Hera and Zeus. According to the myth, Zeus wanted baby Hercules to drink the milk of Hera, his wife. Because Hercules was born of another woman, Hera disagreed. Zeus brought Hercules to Hera to drink her milk while she was sleeping, but she awoke and pushed him away. The drops of milk that spilled on the ground grew into lilies.
The Lily flower, in all its various forms, is commonly considered to mean:
- royalty and regal bearing
- motherhood and fertility
- purity and the beauty of youth
- passion and drive
- renewal and rebirth.
Lilies commonly grow in white, yellow, pink, red, and orange.
White lilies symbolize purity and virtue.
Pink lilies symbolize prosperity and abundance.
Red lilies symbolize passion.
Orange lilies symbolize confidence, pride, and wealth.
Yellow lilies symbolizes thankfulness and desire for enjoyment.
