The popularity of red roses on Valentine's Day dates back to the nineteenth century when the Victorians used floral bouquets to deliver coded messages to love interests. This system was know as floriography and it officially cemented the rose's romantic status. A red rose represents 'love' due to the colour red being linked to passion. A pink rose can mean appreciation and grace, a yellow rose stands for friendship and happiness and a white rose represents innocence.
