Daisy Flower Meaning and Symbolism Guide

If you’re anything like us, then you probably grin when you see a daisy flower. The iconic flower has become a symbol of spring and most of us remember sitting with our friends making daisy chains as children, or perhaps spotting one lets you know that winter is finally over, and spring has officially sprung. 

Humans have loved daisies for thousands of years. In fact, since 2,200 BC they’ve been a fixture in our lives. Once used for herbal remedies in ancient Egypt (fun fact: wild daisy tea is still said to be a natural cure for coughs and general pain) the use of daisies in our culture has naturally evolved.

However, like all flowers, daisies have a symbolic meaning and a rich history. In this blog, we’ll discuss everything from the meaning behind a daisy flower to the differences between the species of daisies.

What Does the Daisy Flower Symbolise?

Whilst the variety of colours can symbolise different things, the most common meanings associated with the daisy flower are purity, innocence, childbirth, new beginnings and cheerfulness.

The signature white petals were traditionally used by flower girls in weddings to symbolise the purity of love.


What Are the Different Daisy Flower Meanings?

Whilst the white daisy with its yellow centre is the most recognisable, there are many other variations of this beautiful wildflower. Each of them means something different. Here is a rundown of what each colour represents:

White Daisy

As mentioned the white daisy has many meanings, specifically innocence and purity. This makes them a perfect flower for weddings or a bouquet for new parents.

Pink Daisy

It probably comes as no surprise to you that a pink daisy is associated with love, tenderness, and kindness. It’s a great alternative to a rose if you’re looking for something more subtle.

Blue Daisy

Blue Daisies may be a rarer type of daisy but they’re still beautiful. Often, they signify long-term commitment and trust, making them a great option to gift your partner.

Orange Daisy

Looking for joy and happiness? And let’s face it, who isn’t? Orange daisies are perfect and a great way to brighten someone’s day.
