International Women's Day falls on Friday March 8th, 2019 and is honored worldwide. This is a perfect opportunity to honor the women in your life. Women's Day has been observed since as early as 1900’s in which 15,000 women marched through the streets of New York City in fight for better working conditions and voting rights. We now honor and celebrate women's social, economic, and political achievements as we fight for gender equality.
Historically Women's Day is symbolized with the colors of Purple, Green, and White to represent women's equality for the women's social and political union. The purple signifies justice and dignity, green symbolizes hope and white symbolizes purity. However, in the modern day the International Women’s Day organization has narrowed it down to the color of purple. A flower that captures the strength, beauty, and resilience of women is a Potted Phalaenopsis Orchid. If you are looking for a bouquet, the Anemones Bouquet which showcases vibrant and brightly fresh cut flowers in shades of Purple, Pink, and Red.
Traditionally men honor their mothers, wives, daughters, girlfriends, and colleagues with flowers and small gifts. For others it’s the perfect opportunity for kids to recognize and honor their mothers, grandmothers, teachers, and women leaders in their life by sending them a beautiful gift. For Women’s Day, send them fresh flowers from Flowerbud.com to show your appreciate and gratitude for all the hard work they put in.
