Carnation flowers have been one of the most popular flowers for ages. They are Caryophyllaceae members.
Dianthus is the scientific name of the plant. The Greek meaning of the word Dianthus is Zeus Flower. Hence, the carnation flowers are popularly referred to as “The Flowers of God.” However, there are debates about the origin of the name Carnation. Some say that it has been derived from the Greek word ‘corone’ meaning ‘Flower Garlands.’ Some say that it is after the Latin word ‘incarnacyon’ or ‘carnis’ referring to human flesh’s incarnation.
A carnation flower symbolizes Woman’s love and Fascination. However, as carnation flowers are available in many colors, each variety symbolizes different things.
