5. Symbols of St. Valentine’s Day
- What symbols are associated with Valentine’s Day? Read the text and write them down
- Why are hearts, Cupid, roses, harps, lovebirds, doves, knots symbols of St Valentine’s Day? What have you found out about each symbol?
Every holiday has certain symbols that represent the meaning of the celebration. Most of these are very easy to spot. Since Valentine’s Day is the holiday of love, the first symbol is obviously the heart. Many gifts for Valentine’s Day are in the shape of a heart and common gifts are heart pendants, heart shaped boxes of chocolate and even heart shaped candies. Love and affection has long been associated with the heart and many common phrases such as “broken heart” are often used to show how someone is feeling. This is the most common Valentine’s Day symbol.
The next symbol is also a character. Cupid is often seen on Valentine’s Day cards, gifts, signs and advertisements. Cupid is the mythical God of Love and was a mischievous character that carried around a bow and arrow. Legend says that when he struck someone with their bow, they would fall deeply in love with the next person they saw. This is where the term love struck originated. You may also hear people talking about being hit with Cupid’s arrow as a way to say that they are falling in love with someone.
Another symbol you might see often during Valentine’s Day is that of a rose. Red roses symbolize and affection and are commonly given during this holiday. While roses come in lots of colours, the most common symbol of the holiday is a single red rose. Red roses are the most popular flowers given during Valentine’s Day with over a million roses sold each year.
One symbol that is not as widely used, but is still associated with Valentine’s Day is a harp. The harp is a musical instrument that represents “the art” of love. This symbol has been used since early times and is rumored to prove a direct link between Heaven and Earth. Many people use the music from a harp to play at their weddings.
Lovebirds and doves are also symbols of love. While they are not as popular during Valentine’s as the others, they are frequently used on cards and gifts. An ancient legend says that doves would often find their mate for life on Valentine’s Day each year.
One symbol of love that is more common in other parts of the world is the knot. Old traditions of sending love notes to people that were tied up in a knot gave birth to the use of knots as a symbol of love. Sometimes these love knots are used on Valentine’s Day cards and other trinkets.

Read the text “St. Valentine’s Story” to find out who Valentine was and why people remember him?
Let me introduce myself. My name is Valentine. I lived in Rome during the third century. That was long, long ago! At that time, Rome was ruled by an emperor named Claudius. I didn't like Emperor Claudius, and I wasn't the only one! A lot of people shared my feelings.
Claudius wanted to have a big army. He expected men to volunteer to join. Many men just did not want to fight in wars. They did not want to leave their wives and families. As you might have guessed, not many men signed up. This made Claudius furious. So what happened? He had a crazy idea. He thought that if men were not married, they would not mind joining the army. So Claudius decided not to allow any more marriages. Young people thought his new law was cruel. I thought it was preposterous! I certainly wasn't going to support that law!
Did I mention that I was a priest? One of my favorite activities was to marry couples. Even after Emperor Claudius passed his law, I kept on performing marriage ceremonies ~ secretly, of course. It was really quite exciting. Imagine a small candlelit room with only the bride and groom and myself. We would whisper the words of the ceremony, listening all the while for the steps of soldiers.
One night, we did hear footsteps. It was scary! Thank goodness the couple I was marrying escaped in time. I was caught. (Not quite as light on my feet as I used to be, I guess.) I was thrown in jail and told that my punishment was death.
I tried to stay cheerful. And do you know what? Wonderful things happened. Many young people came to the jail to visit me. They threw flowers and notes up to my window. They wanted me to know that they, too, believed in love.
One of these young people was the daughter of the prison guard. Her father allowed her to visit me in the cell. Sometimes we would sit and talk for hours. She helped me to keep my spirits up. She agreed that I did the right thing by ignoring the Emperor and going ahead with the secret marriages. On the day I was to die, I left my friend a little note thanking her for her friendship and loyalty. I signed it, "Love from your Valentine."
I believe that note started the custom of exchanging love messages on Valentine's Day. It was written on the day I died, February 14, 269 A.D. Now, every year on this day, people remember the story. But most importantly, they think about love and friendship. And when they think of Emperor Claudius, they remember how he tried to stand in the way of love, and they laugh — because they know that love can't be beaten!
