They are often and unjustifiably associated with envy and jealousy, but their appearance and brilliance show them to be particularly delightful flowers. Therefore, it would simply be a shame for yellow roses to be given only this connotation. Much more justified would be their association with the rays and warmth of the sun from which, according to some traditions, they originate. For this reason, yellow roses signify joy, friendship, well-being and platonic love. Send a bouquet of yellow roses because you are a cheerful person, always smiling and because you want to show your appreciation towards friendship.
