A red rose is a meaningful universal symbol for love. They also stand for respect and courage. Red rosebuds mean pure and lovely. These understandings of feminine virtue are found in Proverbs 31:10-31, which is also known as the Bible’s Woman of Valor.
Traditionally Jewish men read this scripture passage to their wives of the Sabbath as a tribute. It is also a custom to bring flowers to the wife or any home that one visits for the Friday evening meal. This ancient custom continues to this day.
Rosebuds symbolize beauty, youth and an innocent heart.
A single rose stands for simplicity.
