The reason behind the use of lily in the festival of Easter is that it represents purity and it is for this reason it is associated with mother Mary. You can find the pictures of saints congratulating mother Mary at the birth of Jesus.

This flower serves as the symbol of Easter and it signifies purity and hope, especially the white lily. You will find that there are many legends that are related to the flower; when you search through the Roman mythology, lily can be associated with Juno, the gods' queen.

When it comes to the tradition of Easter it is used to honour the resurrection of Jesus and it is for this reason that the churches are decorated with white lilies. Lilies also serve as a gift during the festival.
