White Lilies

White lilies are one of the most deeply traditional Easter flowers, as they've long considered a symbol of the resurrection of Christ. They're mentioned several times in the Old and New Testaments of the Bible, and were even said to have grown in the Garden of Gethsemane. This religious history means they've come to signify peace, purity, rebirth, and new beginnings, and as a result they're a common sight in churches around Easter.
