Easter Symbols: Easter Lily

Among all the blooming flowers of spring, one flower in particular has earned a place as the symbolic flower of Easter – the lily.

Since lilies grow from a bulb that is buried and then blooms into life, it is a beautiful representation of the death and resurrection of Jesus.

Furthermore, the trumpet shaped blooms of lilies have been likened to the trumpets of angels that herald significant events.

Lilies announce not only the arrival of spring, but the greatest event in Christian history–the resurrection of Christ!

And last, the most important symbol of ALL during Easter!
