== == The lily, especially during Easter time, also symbolizes 'new life'

An old Chinese custom was the custom of the 'Lily foot'. Where parents would crush their young girls feet, any girl who had these feet were seen as graceful and elegant and that is how a lily is seen, as a graceful flower symbolising all that is elegant and graceful.
