As artists in our own right, it’s one of our valuable sources of creative inspiration when creating fresh and fabulous floral designs. Check out this guide to discover everything you need to know about Viva Magenta and how it translates to your favorite floral arrangements and their flower meanings.
What Is Viva Magenta?
According to Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of Pantone Color Institute:
“In this age of technology, we look to draw inspiration from nature and what is real. PANTONE 18-1750 Viva Magenta descends from the red family, and is inspired by the red of cochineal, one of the most precious dyes belonging to the natural dye family as well as one of the strongest and brightest the world has known. Rooted in the primordial, PANTONE 18-1750 Viva Magenta reconnects us to the original matter. Invoking the forces of nature, PANTONE 18-1750 Viva Magenta galvanizes our spirit, helping us to build our inner strength.”

Viva Magenta Flower Meaning
In floriography, commonly known as the beautiful language of flowers, Viva Magenta symbolizes a bold and irresistible kind of love that is not afraid to display affection, take leaps of faith, or conquer the odds stacked against them. Likewise, it’s also a fitting representation of a strong, fearless, and independent woman, a timeless classic, and a boundless beauty of modern times. Sending a hand bouquet in this audacious color can mean love and admiration.
