Water lilies grow in deep mud, yet present beautiful flowers. As such, they are considered a symbol of purity – for even as it emerges from the mud, the water lily flower is pure and free from blemishes.
The symbolism of the water lily can be traced back thousands of years, and it has spiritual values depending on different cultures and countries.
The scientific name of the water lily comes from the Greek word “nymph” which, in Greek mythology, represents a feminine spirit that inhabits water.
In ancient Egypt, pillars of temples were adorned with lilies to symbolize the cycle of life. Hindu and Buddhist religions consider the water lily to be a sacred flower: Buddhists consider that the water lily represents enlightenment, where Hindus believe the water lily symbolizes resurrection, as the lilies close their blossoms at night and open as soon as the sun rises.
In Western cultures, water lilies may represent eloquence and gracefulness.
