Family + Friendship

Because of its enduring bloom cycle, sunflower symbolism represents family, friendship, and the ties of loyalty that bind you together. The people you love — whether they’re family you’re born with or family you choose — are with you forever, no matter how long it’s been since you’ve seen them or how far apart you are. They’re the people who will always stand beside you, uplift you, and accompany you on the journey of life.

Let sunflower symbolism continually remind you that no matter how far apart you are, those in your heart are always with you. True friends are always with you in spirit.

A flower blooming in July that will continue to brighten our lives through October, sunflower symbolism represents good cheer and a reminder that there is always something to be happy about, even in the darkest moments, even when that thing is as simple as seeing a beautiful flower in passing as you go through your hard day.
