Through time, around the world and across cultures, the rose has taken on various different symbolic meanings. For example it can be a symbol of love but also pain.
One traditional legend says that the rose grew thorns after Adam and Eve were banished from Eden, to remind people of all they had lost in Paradise as well as their Original Sin.
The rose is a symbol of love and passion, but its thorns try to defend the flower from desecration and so it is also a symbol of purity and virginity.
