Roses have a Long History and Many Meanings

The rose was used by ancient Egyptian pharaohs. The Romans imported roses from Egypt and even developed a hot house technology to maximize their bloom. The House of Tudor in England adopted the rose as its official symbol in their struggle for the throne of England: hence the War of the Roses. With all this attention, it's no wonder that roses have become a symbol of love and beauty.
