Carnation - January's Flower
January’s birth flower, the carnation, comes in several different colors to convey different meanings, much like roses. A pink carnation means affection, while a red carnation means ‘I love you.’ White carnations mean pure love, striped carnations means regret that a love is not shared, and yellow means rejection or disappointment. The other January flower is the snowdrop, which used to be considered bad luck due to the fact that it would always seem to appear to grow in graveyards. Nowadays, it signifies hope and beauty.

January babies, you are so lucky that you have carnation as your birth month's flower. Carnation has always been there calmest flower in my own perception. It's color looks so classy and reserved. This is the only time that I knew that this flower signifies hope and beauty. If that's the case then I couldn't agree with it even more. Some of my friends who were born on January are all beautiful inside and out and they are being represented by carnation very well.
