The Lotus Flower represents patience and purity. Associated with rebirth and enlightenment, and faithfulness. From muddy waters beauty emerges, and the lotus flower shall always rise above the mud. This is such a great a symbolism for life as well, that trying times and difficult situations that are hard to navigate can ultimately lead to beautiful outcomes and help to grow into even better human beings.
The color of the Lotus certainly affects its general meaning as well. The white lotus flower and pink lotus flower from the Nelumbo family are seen as meaning purity and devotion. More passionately colored red, purple, and blue Lotus flower blooms can take on a spiritual meaning of ascension, enlightenment, or rebirth. A green Lotus flower is a beautiful gift for anyone trying to improve their life and start good habits.
Deeply rooted in spiritual purity. The Buddha for example is seen emerging from the lotus. In fact the mantra “mani padme” meaning “jewel of the lotus” is a reference to Nirvana.
