Celebration in color


And flowers have their own day. One of the most colorful and bright Christian holidays is coming, namely Palm Sunday. This ‘moving’ holiday, apart from being one of the most important religious holidays in Bulgaria, actually gives us an occasion to celebrate all the people bearing names of flowers.

Mentioning flowers, every person immediately begins to make associations with different and colorful colors. Then it is important to tell you that every year has its own color and this year it vibrates with vitality and strength.

The custom

Palm Sunday is the day of flowers, youth and the rebirth of life in nature. It is celebrated on the Sunday before the Resurrection of Christ. On this day, the Orthodox Church commemorates a solemn welcome of Jesus to Jerusalem with olive and laurel branches. A tradition on this day is to go to a festive service in a church with flowers and willow branches. The saints consecrate the willow branches and they return to the home for health.

The color of 2023

The Pantone Color Institute is an institute that speaks the language of color. An iconic name in the fields of fashion, product, graphic design and lifestyle. For this year, the institute decided on the color: Viva Magenta 18-1750. It is a shade rooted in nature, originating from the red family and expressing a new signal of strength. Viva Magenta is a bold, fearless and vibrant color whose abundance encourages joyful and optimistic celebration, writing a new narrative.

The festival of flowers

According to native statistics, one fifth of Bulgarians celebrate Palm Sunday. Women named after flowers, although with slight changes, are about ten percent of Bulgarian women, the same applies to men. A great occasion to delight someone with the name of a flower, why not keep up with fashion and give a bouquet in the color Viva Magenta. We have several suggestions for you:
