It has long been established that flowers make an ideal tribute for the deceased. You often see flower arrangements being displayed at wakes and memorial services. This shows that sending flowers for funerals continues to be a significant tradition throughout Malaysia.
Some people may think that funeral flowers are just for beautifying the event, adding pomp to the solemn ceremonies, and putting in some colours to an otherwise sombre setting.
Significance and symbolism of sending funeral flowers
Flowers may not be able to speak but their silent presence can express words that are too painful to say. Each type of flower has a certain language that can express deep emotions of sympathy and understanding.
Aside from the expression of love and sympathy, flowers carry symbolisms that touch through the spiritual journey of humans. Like flowers, humans come and go on this earth, and we all bring temporary beauty to life. This simple act can make the bereaved feel that you understand them and that sympathy is even more genuine and sincere.
The act of giving flowers in times of grief can be traced back to thousands of years ago before embalming came into practice. Aside from paying tribute to the departed, flowers were used for their fragrance in order to help counter the odours of decaying bodies. It has been a living tradition that transpired over the years. Today, floral arrangements remain a vital part of funerals not only for decorative purposes but with a growing list of significance.
