The very first World Friendship Day was proposed in 1958 as a way to foster peace worldwide through friendship. The United Nations created the International Day of Friendship in 2011 to promote connections between those of different cultures, countries, and ideologies. It is a day full of diversity, inclusion, and appreciation dedicated to celebrating those friends that make your life exciting. 

What better way to celebrate your closest friends on International Day of Friendship than by sending them flowers? Here are some great options:

Yellow Roses

Roses are available in many colors, but yellow roses are THE friendship flower. Their meaning is most closely associated with happiness in friendship and new beginnings. Roses are one of the most popular flowers to send, so you can’t go wrong with yellow ones for the International Day of Friendship!
