Flowers for the last farewell
Flowers display the beauty of nature and, just as we surround ourselves with flowers throughout life, we do the same, when life ends and we have to say goodbye. In this way, flowers symbolise not only beauty and life, but also fragility and transience. Flowers grow, bloom and die just as we do.
A funeral should be a beautiful farewell, and flowers are an important part of the ceremony. Casket sprays, wreaths and flower hearts are the most usual choice for paying one's respects at funerals in Denmark. Meanwhile, family and close friends often include an inscribed ribbon with the flowers they give.
