Red is the colour of passion. It shows your desire and love. If you are gifting red gerberas to someone, you are expressing that you are fully immersed in love with the person.
The gerbera has different meanings to different cultures. The Egyptians believed that they symbolised a closeness to nature and a devotion to the sun, whereas the Celts thought they lessened the sorrows and stresses of everyday life. Generally, gerberas symbolise innocence, purity, cheerfulness and loyal love.
