Symbols—conventional

Symbols allow us to convey powerful meaning without having to use words. They often represent the ineffable, what we can't easily put into words. Take flowers, used for both weddings and funerals:

Weddings—suggest the beauty of youth and the freshness of new love, fertility
Funerals—suggest the brevity and fragility of life on earth, life everlasting life because flowers die and are reborn in spring.
