Easter Lilies

Symbol of purity, fertility

The purity of Christ and the Virgin Mary is symbolized by the white Easter Lily. It lies dormant until spring, when it breaks forth from the earth with a beautiful white bloom. Lilies were thought to have blossomed from Christ’s blood after he was crucified. In ancient Greece, lilies were also associated with rebirth and motherhood. The lily was created by Hera, Zeus’s wife, from her breast milk. In ancient Greece, the lily symbolized purity and fertility. Juno, the Roman goddess, impregnated herself by taking the form of a flower in order to keep her virginity.
