What does the color yellow represent?

First of all, before we can look at the significance of yellow flowers, we must first look at the symbolism of it as a color. Though it is mistakenly believed to have negative connotations, this color is actually a symbol of optimism, harmony, brilliance, and joy.

Reflecting the same energy and color of the sun, yellow is highly energetic and associated with happiness and friendship.

It is also said to relate to the side of our brain that is responsible for communication and expressing our emotions. It is a color that helps to clarify our ideas and so is often used in meditation to clear any blockages and create an open flow of communication. This is particularly interesting for anyone wishing to use the symbolism of yellow flowers to express themselves, either in their gardens or in a bouquet to someone.

Now we know that this joyful color holds such strong potential for communication, let’s see what yellow flowers can represent when sent as a gift.

What do yellow flowers represent?

Bright sunshine blooms are symbolic of positive feelings of friendship, hope, optimism and energy. These symbols of yellow flowers can be used in a variety of ways to convey different meanings to people according to the situation.

For example, the vibrant intensity of golden flowers makes them a perfect choice for wishing someone who is ill, grieving, or going through a period of sadness, a speedy recovery. A symbol of the sun’s warmth, yellow flowers are an ideal way to cheer up someone who is feeling down.

More so than love or romance, the meaning of yellow flowers is deeply rooted in platonic friendship. Sunshine blooms are typically associated with demonstrating happiness in a friendship and are used to strengthen ties between friends. Their joyful optimism, energy, and hope are said to consolidate relationships so that they can survive difficult times, as well as celebrate all of the joys true friendship can bring.

It is for this reason yellow flowers are so often used in bouquets for friends’ or relatives’ birthdays, well-wishing bouquets or celebrating a friend’s special achievement.
