The Passion Flower
As we near Easter the symbolism of the Passion Flower brings us reminders of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.
The colours of the Passion Flower are generally blue and white which are said to represent the heavens and purity. The three stigmas are said to represent the three nails that were used on Christ’s hands and feet to affix him to the cross. The five anthers are associated with the five wounds of Christ and the hundreds of filaments are said to represent the crown of thorns.
