Heavenly Carnations

Carnations History

Carnations have a history that goes back to around 2,000 years. Some scholars advocate that their name came from the word “corone” which means flower garlands or “coronation” because it is used in Greek ritual crowns, and some scholars propose that their name is derived from Latin where “carnis” which means flesh is a reference to the pinkish hue of the flowers or “incarnacyon” which means incarnation, refers to the incarnation of flesh made by God.

Carnations are also frequently called Dianthus (their scientific name given by the Greek botanist Theophrastus). The name Dianthus comes from two Greek Words – “dios”, refers to god Zeus and “anthos”, which means flower. Carnations are therefore famously known as “The Flowers of God”.
