The white lily is a symbol for purity, modesty, virginity, humility, happiness, loves good fortune, and majesty. In the Christian faith the Easter lily is also known as the symbol of the Virgin Mary. In Roman mythology Juno, the queen of the Gods, was nursing her son Hercules. Some milk trickled from her breast creating the stars we call the Milky Way and lilies her on earth. I can see why so much attention was paid to this gorgeous flower.
