Red roses are a symbol of love and passion. One of the most famous literary examples is "A Red, Red Rose" by Scots poet Robert Burns. In this 1794 song, the flower is a metaphor for the depth and intensity of his feelings. It has also been used as a symbol of sacrifice and martyrdom. In Christian art, the red rose is often associated with the blood of Christ and the sacrifice made for humanity. The red rose is also a symbol of the Virgin Mary, who is often depicted holding a red rose in paintings and sculptures.

The rose is known for its medicinal properties and has been used for centuries to treat a variety of ailments. The petals of the rose contain gallic acid, which has anti-inflammatory and astringent properties. Roses are also high in vitamin C and other antioxidants, which may benefit the skin. The cultivation of roses has played a significant role in the development of the modern flower industry, and the red rose is one of the most popular flowers in the world.
