The language of flowers developed during the highly conservative period of the Victorian era. The Victorians were strongly restricted by the rules of etiquette when it was considered totally inappropriate to express feelings of love or affection. The "Language of Flowers" therefore evolved when a message was assigned to specific flower such as the Calendula (Marigold). A lover could then send flowers which conveyed a hidden romantic meaning.
The hidden message of the Birth Flower, the Calendula, so favored during the Victorian era was "My thoughts are with you".
