La calla: ancient meaning

The calla lily spadix is the actual inflorescence of the plant. The origin of the calla, and its meaning, has its roots in the myth and stories of ancient divinities. According to the Greek tradition, for example, the first calla was generated by a few drops of mother's milk accidentally fallen from the breast of the goddess Hera, deity of the Earth and of procreation. For the Greek culture, therefore, the calla was an undisputed symbol of femininity and prosperity. On the contrary, however, the Roman popular tradition attributed a decidedly erotic and sensual meaning to it, due to the exuberant spadix found in the center of the flower. The calla was therefore considered a phallic symbol, an emblem of masculinity and virility. However, no one has ever questioned its first and true meaning, what makes the calla a symbol and emblem of beauty and perfection. According to an ancient legend, in fact, it was Venus herself who cursed the flower, due to its excessive beauty. As a consequence of this divine curse, the central sword was formed, thus making it more ugly and ungainly.

Calla meaning: One flower, multiple meanings

The calla in one of the many artistic representations. Beauty, purity, perfection, eternal life. But also love, passion and sexuality. Over time, different traditions and different cultures have made the calla the meaning of passionate and violent moods or, again, a symbol of virtue and purity. However, no one has ever questioned its charm, to the point that famous artists and photographers have competed with each other in an attempt to represent, at best, the essence of this enchantment. And its symbolic strength is confirmed by the fact that many countries, in their political history, have chosen the calla as a symbol of freedom and revolution. The calla was, and is, a flower capable of speaking straight to the heart of those who hold it in their hands. Knowing why, is a way to better speak the secret language of this so unique flower.

In the subtle language of flowers, the calla plays a very particular role. Its very name, from the Greek "kalós", meaning "beautiful", makes it a symbol of pure and uncontaminated beauty, delicate and refined. But its ancient history sees it at the center of myths and legends that, over time, have contributed to increasing its fame and value, giving it other meanings, often opposed to each other. Generally, giving a calla lily means showing affection and esteem towards the person to whom it is given. Yet, depending on the color, it can also symbolize different moods: pure and innocent love, if the flower is white, or passionate and sensual love, if it is tinged with red; femininity, if we are giving away a pink calla; eternity, if we have a purple calla in our hands, also called black calla. In this multiplicity of meanings, the best way to know which calla to give is to know its history better.
