flowers dedicated to Apollo, the Greek god of the sun who is also considered as the patron of the arts. Hence, the hyacinth in general is used to symbolize “games and sports” as well as “rashness.”

The blue hyacinth symbolizes “constancy” while the red or pink hyacinth symbolizes a playful nature. When you receive a purple hyacinth from your best friend or loved one with whom you just had a fight, consider the flower as their way of saying “I am Sorry, Please Forgive Me.”
