Beautifully Detailed Carnation Stencil in a Circular Design
This Original Floral Stencil image measures 11" x 11". Our Flower Circle 2 stencil is a whorl of carnations, which lend themselves to quite a variety of colors!
Light red carnations represent admiration, while dark red denote deep love and affection.
White carnations represent pure love and good luck, while striped (variegated) carnations symbolise regret that a love cannot be shared.
White carnations, in the Netherlands are associated with HRH prince Bernhard. He wore one during World War II and in a gesture of defiance some of the Dutch population took up this gesture. After the war the white carnation became a sign of the Prince, veterans and remembrance of the resistance.
Purple carnations indicate capriciousness. In France, it is a traditional funeral flower, given in condolence for the death of a loved one.
According to a Christian legend, carnations first appeared on Earth as Jesus carried the Cross. The Virgin Mary shed tears at Jesus' plight, and carnations sprang up from where her tears fell. Thus the pink carnation became the symbol of a mother's undying love.
Carnation is the birth flower for those born in the month of January.
Green carnations are for St. Patrick's Day and were famously worn by the Irish writer Oscar Wilde.
The formal name for carnation, dianthus, comes from Greek for "heavenly flower", or flower of Jove.
