Although the color blue is often thought to represent sadness, it also is widely known for representing calm, serenity, strength, loyalty, and trust. Here at Hollywood’s top flower shop, Al’s Florist, we love adding blue blooms to arrangements for their sense of mystery and refreshing energy.
The color blue has several different representations based on the shade. Light blue, for example, represents friendliness, peace, and infinity. Mid-range and bright blues stand for strength, dependability, and trust, while darker blues symbolize intelligence, authority, and dignity.
The many different shades of blue flowers and their many different meanings is why we love them so much. Below are some of our favorites:
