Since ancient Greek and Roman civilizations, we have records of humanity attaching sentiments to specific flowers, and using them to convey messages of love, pride, and admiration. The species of flowers you utilize to design your bouquets can tell a story to your loved ones who are graduating. For instance, the regal and towering gladioli flower signifies courage and victory; and the purple iris indicates a recognition that the recipient is wise. Palm fronds and laurel leaves are used to exhibit honor and accomplishment and make an interesting greenery backdrop.

Roses are always a popular bloom for any occasion, and graduations are no exception. Each color of rose holds a deep meaning, and most are appropriate for graduation bouquets. The most common is a yellow rose bouquet, which represents that the recipient has reached the highest mark of distinction. Orange roses convey pride, pink roses speak to admiration, and lavender roses show respect for a job well done.
