Although not as deep or passionate as red tulips, they do represent love. Pink tulips are ideal for sending to friends and family to show them how much you care.


Rosette emoji

The 🏵️ Rosette emoji is a colored illustration of a rosette, a yellow-and-orange ornament folded to look like a rose. This flower-shaped decor is frequently presented as an award, and a ribbon or medal is often placed on top of it.

Because rosettes grow so close to the ground, the rosette emoji represents being ‘down to earth’ and humble. It can also refer to a ribbon worn as a prize, or in support of someone, or something. Use this symbol when talking about accomplishments, flowers, decorations, or awards!


Wilted Flower Emoji

This particular symbol is rarely used in reference to a dead flower, and is more often used to express or convey sad emotions, like a lack of hope or disillusionment. Share this with your family and friends to tell them you’re not in a good place, and in desperate need of cheering up!


Blossom Emoji

This emoji is a picture of a flower that has blossomed. Unlike the Cherry Blossom, the 🌼 Blossom emoji does not depict or represent a particular type of flower. It is basically a yellow flower with petals of equal shapes and sizes. Some platforms have white flowers instead of yellow, and green stems.

The blossom emoji does not represent a specific flower, but rather a stage of development in the life of a flower. It refers to a fully bloomed flower, ready to spread beauty and joy wherever it goes. Share this symbol if you, or the one you’re giving this to, feels like or is like a flower in full bloom, ready and raring to take on the world!

In a more general sense, along with the other flower emojis, the blossom emoji represents the beauty of nature, or beauty in general.


White Flower Emoji

The 💮 White Flower emoji shows a drawing of a circular white flower with a pink or reddish outline that runs the length of the flower. The emoji has Japanese writing in the center of the flower. When translated, the words mean “Very Well Done,” a mark or a stamp generally used by teachers.

The drawing represents a flower from a Japanese cherry blossom tree; however, it should not be confused with the actual 🌸 Cherry Blossom emoji. Think of it as the more generic variety.

The White Flower emoji often appears in topics of conversations related to Japan. Naturally, Japanese people and fans of Japanese culture share the emoji a lot. Some use it as a symbol of art and poetry. It signifies love, gratitude, and happiness to an extent, as well! Share the white flower emoji if there is something about Japanese culture you like very much, whether it’s a trip you recently made to Japan, or a Japanese movie you saw.


Bouquet Emoji

Who does not want to receive a bouquet of flowers? Sending a bouquet of flowers to someone is one of the sweetest things you can ever do. Flowers are a well-known symbol of romance and appreciation, after all! If for some reason or the other you can’t send a real-life bouquet, why not try a bouquet emoji in the meantime?

The 💐 Bouquet emoji shows a bunch of violet and yellow flowers with green stems. The stems are tied together and the flowers are facing different angles. Although the design of this emoji may vary from platform to platform the colors remain the same.

The bouquet emoji is used to express warm wishes, greetings, love, affection, happiness, or even congratulations. It can sometimes have sort of a wedding vibe to it when used to refer to a bridal bouquet.

There’s nothing better than having beautiful flowers to brighten up your online AND real-time environment. Flower emojis add color and beauty to emails, text messages, and social media feeds. In turn, actual flowers provide a natural, graceful touch to home decor.

Follow Rules

When you finally get to work don’t forget that flowers, and flower emojis come with their own set of rules, too.

First up, flower emojis are still emojis. Emojis should add to your message, NOT be the message, so try not to put too many emojis in there.

If they need to be in the middle of a sentence, make sure the sentence will still make sense once you read it aloud. We get it, emojis are cute, but try not to get too swept up in your emotions, so much so, you find yourself posting 10 🌹 Rose emojis at a time. Remember, we rely on them to say what words can’t, so if you post in that manner, people might think you are shouting.

In real life, don’t forget the basic rules of flower arranging, too, like how to practice proportion, balance, and harmony. When arranging flowers in a vase, the size of the flowers, container, and foliage should all be in proportion to each other. For example, a small pink Hibiscus flower might look out of proportion arranged in a tall vase.

Conversely, don’t let too many rules take the fun out of what you’re doing. Stop and smell the roses, literally and figuratively. Trust us when we say, down the line, a fresh set of eyes from time to time will make all the difference! Enjoy your deep dive into the fascinating world of flowers!
