Roses signify completion, the achievement of perfection. The sinless Christian earns for her or himself a rose. The virgin gets a white rose. Red roses stand for earthly love and blue roses (very rare) represent an impossible end. Perhaps to keep mourners cheered, blue roses seldom appear in cemetery art. Yellow roses, the emblem of jealousy, also seldom appear: few envy the dead so much.
