When in Hawaii and you see a lovely lady with a beautiful flower worn behind her ear, there may be more going on than meets the eye -- if you know the secret local code. She may be signaling to everyone around her that she is married or single, but how will you know? By reading further I will share the Hawaii secret sign with all my blog readers.
If you wear a flower behind your left ear, it means you are married, taken, have a significant other, or maybe you just don't want anyone bothering you! If you wear a flower behind your right ear, it means you are single, available, and approachable.
How to remember which ear means what? You would wear your wedding ring on your left hand, so a flower behind your left ear means you are off the market! If you are single, wear a flower behind your right ear and a smile on your face.
For some added fun at your next luau party, pass out authentic fresh Hawaiian orchid blossoms direct from the Big Island where they are grown, to your guests. Beside people wearing flowers behind their ears to show their marital status, our fresh orchid flowers look great in drinks, topped on cakes and pupu platters, as table decorations, and you can also string them together to sew your own flower leis.
