Meaning of roseEdit

  • Saying that someone has rosy cheeks suggests that they are in good health.
  • Saying that someone is "seeing through rose-colored glasses" means that they are an optimist, only seeing the good and neglecting to notice the bad. (The opposite type of person, a pessimist, is symbolised by the color grey).
  • The color rose is well loved in Iran because the cultivation of the rose flower is thought to have began in Iran.
  • Rose is the national color of Georgia (specifically, that tone of rose called Dogwood Rose or Georgian Rose [shown on the color chart below]) because the people of Georgia believe the cultivation of roses began there.
  • Marrakesh, Morocco is sometimes called the Rose City because many of its buildings are colored shades of rose or pink.
