Flowers have always been of great importance to humans of all cultures throughout our history. Flowers have often been used ceremonially in worship and to show reverence, as gifts or offerings, as food, as decorations and to celebrate important events. Floral displays are still used to great effect in religious ceremonies throughout Asia and India, and many temples and religious sites are regularly adorned with fresh floral displays.
In the west, floral displays and flowers are synonymous with all of the most important life events, from weddings and anniversaries to funerals and memorial services, as well as floral displays used in national commemorations such national holidays and Remembrance Sunday.
