The ancient Greeks and Romans believed the flowers had religious significance and they were used to decorate temples and other places of worship.

These days, carnations are traditionally associated with expressions of love, and luck.

 Around Oxford University at exam times, there are Carnations everywhere. Students wear a white carnation in their lapel when they sit  their first exam, and pink carnation for all exams in between, finally changing to red for the very last exam.

They can also symbolise great change, in Portugal, carnations symbolise the end - of the country’s former communist regime and transition to a liberal democracy, an event known as the Carnation Revolution. In 1974 ordinary citizens took to the streets and stood down the army armed with nothing but red carnations.
