Reading bookmarks are a must for bibliophiles and for the casual reader. Bookmarkers enable us to set aside our reading pleasures for a while and return with ease to the exact same page we left our adventure - without damaging the books with dog ears. Adding to its appeal is the wonderful pink rose design which is sure to make an impression on anyone. Roses are not just pretty flowers with prickles but are also full of history and exciting significance. 

Queen of Flowers
Roses come in many different sizes and a rainbow of colors but the widely known colors are red, pink, white, and yellow. The different colors symbolise different emotions but most convey thoughts of joy, love, admiration, beauty, friendship, and humility. In the arts, roses are widely preferred by still life artists such as Pierre-Joseph Redouté, Claude Monet, and Henri Fantin-Latour - the latter having a rose species named after his honor. In Roman mythology, the goddess Venus was venerated using roses as symbols of her worshippers' devotion. Subsequently when Rome was Christianized, the rose became a symbol for the Virgin Mary. The rose is also the national flower of England with its image used as emblems of the Houses of Lancaster (red rose) and York (white rose) during the Wars of the Roses - English civil wars of the 15th century. The Tudor dynasty subsequently adapted both emblems to make the Tudor Rose, a single rose insignia that unified the red and white roses of the Houses of Lancaster and York. And lastly, in 1871 England's National Rugby Union team and the Rugby Football Union opted for the rose as their symbol.
