The Rose is a classically beautiful flower that represents love, beauty, devotion, and balance. The Latin expression "sub rosa" (literally meaning "under the rose") comes from ancient times when Romans would hang roses from the ceilings of banquet halls, meaning that anything said was to remain confidential. It is also the birth flower of June.
