Yel­low roses

The People's Friend - - Cookery -

Dundee mar­malade,

Dundee cake and

Scotch whisky are for ever linked with the place that gave the world the

“Friend”. Our present and fu­ture are re­flected in the yel­low rose. In the early days of the study of the mean­ing of flow­ers, yel­low roses were ex­changed as a con­trast to the red rose. Some­times they meant friendly af­fec­tion, though some sources give the flower a neg­a­tive mean­ing, such as re­jec­tion. As time went on, the cheery yel­low rose came to sig­nify joy and friend­ship – a per­fect sym­bol for the “Friend”!
