In the greek mythology they say that Aphrodite, the goddess of love created the rose from her tears and from the blood of her lover Adonis. Adonis was stuck by a wild boar and Aphrodite tries to save Adonis but cut herself on the thorns of a rose bush, her blood coloured the roses and created the first red rose.
In roman mythology, their goddess Venus (greek mythology’s Aphrodite), Romans made this flower a symbol of beauty and love. The son of Venus (Cupid) was stung by a bee when he was shooting arrows in a garden full of roses. When Venus was walking in the garden, she got a thorn in her foot, it turned the roses red.
They say that the oldest living rose in the world is located on the wall of the Hildesheim Cathedral in Germany,
