Choosing The Right Colour
To honour the dead, you may want to give cool-coloured flowers and avoid warm-coloured flowers that symbolizes happiness.
Dark-coloured flowers may fit in with the sad and mournful mood of funerals. But, in Chinese traditions, the dark flowers may make the family feel worse. Neutral-coloured flowers should be your choice.
