Flowers Appropriate for Condolence

Flowers Appropriate for Condolence

Funerals are a time of mourning and remembrance for those who have lost a loved one. In Singapore, a common way to pay respects to the deceased is by sending funeral flowers. Flowers are a symbol of love and compassion for the deceased and their family and can help bring comfort to the bereaved. However, the type of flowers chosen can carry different meanings and significance. Want to know what each flower represents when we are talking about mourning? Here’s the meaning behind some of the most-sought funeral flowers in Singapore.


Lilies are one of the most common funeral flowers in Singapore. These elegant flowers represent the restored innocence of the deceased and the purity of the soul. Lilies are also associated with the idea of resurrection and are often used in Christian funeral services to symbolize the resurrection of Jesus Christ. White lilies are the most popular choice for funerals, but pink and yellow lilies are also used to express sympathy.


Chrysanthemums are another popular flower used in funeral arrangements. In Singapore, white chrysanthemums are often used to express grief and condolences. However, in some cultures, such as in Japan, chrysanthemums are associated with death and are only used for funerals or graves. Therefore, it is important to consider cultural sensitivities when selecting funeral flowers.


Roses are often associated with love and passion, but they can also be used to express sympathy and condolences. White roses are a popular choice for funeral arrangements and symbolize purity, innocence, and heavenliness. Red roses, on the other hand, may not be as appropriate for funerals as they symbolize love and romance.


Orchids are a symbol of love, beauty, and strength. In Singapore, orchids are often used in condolence wreaths or standing sprays to represent the deceased’s strength and resilience. White orchids are a popular choice for funeral arrangements, but pink and purple orchids can also be used to express sympathy.


Carnations are a popular flower for funerals in Singapore, as they symbolize love and remembrance. Pink and white carnations are often used in funeral arrangements to express sympathy, while red carnations are a symbol of admiration.

Baby’s Breath

You might think the baby’s breath is just used as filler, but they aren’t. Undoubtedly the flowers are an impeccable natural filler, but they also symbolize everlasting love, sincerity, purity, and compassion, which makes them a subtle addition to funeral flower arrangements and condolence wreaths.


Funeral flowers are a way to express sympathy and condolences to those who have lost a loved one. The flowers you pick, show support and care for those who are grieving and can provide comfort during a difficult time. So, pick the right flowers that express how you feel about the dear departed. Also, unfortunate events like funerals don’t come with prior notice. Instead of scrambling between different florists denying you delivery, you can always choose Prince’s Flower Shop for same-day flower delivery in Singapore.

one of my most fav nurseries out of many i’ve explored in SG. it’s conveniently located near bukit panjang mrt. above all, the prices are reasonable (esp various types of soil mix, fertilizers, pesticides & pots). i’ve bought many plants here; on my lucky days i managed to buy a few rare caladiums and begonias! 😀

Bought my Valentine's bouquet here via instagram. The staff was friendly and patient in explaining the different types of bouquets available and worked well within my budget. They have both delivery and self-pickup options which made it very convenient for us buyers. Needless to say my special one was very pleased with the bouquet. Will definitely come back here again for my flowers.
