The white lily is one of the most important flower symbols to Christianity. It’s mainly a symbol of Virgin Mary’s purity.
It’s a symbol of majesty too with the Roman myth that white lilies came from the queen of the gods. While she was nursing her baby (Hercules), some of the milk from her breast fell to earth. Along its path, it formed the Milky Way and the drops that fell on the ground turned to white lilies. Another version of this story tells about how Hercules got his god like strength.
Apart from the charm and beauty that white lily possesses, it’s also the best way to convey the message of having the feeling of being in heaven with someone or in more contemporary times its called “in cloud 9”. Even with its huge pistil, the white lily is the epitome of beauty. Based on a Roman legend, it was Venus who made this pistil grow from the lily’s center. Jealous of the beauty the lily has, she decided to mar its “perfection” with a huge pistil.
