By Team Fetch

February 15, 2024

Humans have been giving flowers since the beginning of mankind. Research shows the seemingly unsentimental Neanderthals sometimes buried their dead with flowers, and evidence of cultivated flowers has been found across the ancient world.

In a nutshell, there’s nothing new about giving flowers. Nowadays we give them for just about any occasion, and National Flower Day has been established to give them a time of their own.

Whether you’re looking to get rewarded for your floral purchases on National Flower Day this year or you’re looking to offset the cost of the gorgeous arrangement you’re planning to send to that special someone, Fetch can help! Download our shopping app today, start snapping your receipts, and you’ll earn points you can redeem for gift cards to a number of retailers that sell flowers.

When is National Flower Day?

What day is National Flower Day? Every year, National Flower Day is March 21, following the first day of spring. Celebrate National Flower Day this year by creating or ordering a bouquet of your own for a friend or family member.

How Many Flowers Are in a Bouquet & What Does the Number Mean?

A bouquet is simply a group of flowers that have been selected and arranged into a certain design or style without any accompanying foliage. They can then be re-cut and put in water to stay fresh as long as possible.

That’s the easy part. Turns out, even the number of flowers in a bouquet can be a matter of some significance. Might be something to keep in mind when you’re wishing someone a happy National Flower Day with a bouquet of their own.

  • 1 flower symbolizes unity and connection.
  • 3 flowers say, “I love you.”
  • 4 flowers is unlucky in some cultures, so save four-flower bouquets for your enemies only.
  • 5 flowers impart happiness, goodness, and luck, which is why some cultures accompany the giving of a five-flower bouquet with the saying, “Five blessings on your doorstep!”
  • 10 flowers is ideal for expressing admiration.
  • 12 flowers symbolize a year, making them the perfect gift for anniversaries.
  • 16 flowers wish happiness, usually to a friend or relative.
  • 19 flowers are customary for weddings.
  • 21 flowers can express, “You are my most beloved.”
  • 101 flowers say, “You are the one!”

Can You Bring Flowers on a Plane?

The TSA (Transportation Security Administration) isn’t going to make a fuss if you carry flowers in carry-on bags or checked luggage, though water must be removed before you pass security. You’ll also need to keep the airline’s luggage restrictions in mind – if your flowers won’t fit in an overhead bin or under the seat, you might have a problem.

Complications are most likely to crop up with foreign travel. Certain plants may require permits, time under quarantine, or be outright banned, so conduct your research well ahead of time.
