The Easter lily is a symbol associated with motherhood. Symbol of Easter, the white Lily signifies purity and hope. There are many legends related to the Easter lily flower. It’s not just a flower meant to adorn a house, but it has a lot of significance, too. According to Roman mythology, white Lily is associated with Juno, the queen of gods. It is said that at the time when queen Juno was feeding her baby son Hercules, some milk fell from the sky. The part of it that remained above the earth, paved way for the formation of Milky Way and the rest of it that fell on to the earth, lead to the blooming of beautiful white lilies. While some stories suggest that, white lilies are an outcome of the milk of the mythological queen of heaven, Hera, through which these gorgeous flowers had sprung.
