If she wears a flower behind both ears it means she is taken but is open to alternative offers!

This is fantastic, so many people think this has no significant at all, it's good to know. This is similar to Indians with mole between their eyes.

It is clear what was said about the meaning of flowers over a woman's ear but I have also heard that if a woman has flowers over both ears it mean she has a man but is looking for another. A

I never thought about the symbolizing of the flowers behind the ears but I love the tradition. I wonder what year did it start? I wrote an awesome relationship and history book entitled, “7 Types of Queens, Kings Desire," that discusses various traditions and relationship goals. You'll find a few things about Haiwaan women and marriages in there. http://www.7queens7kings.com


So sweet

Saw it on an episode of the jeffersons where Florence explained to Louise the flower behind the ear theory
Hee hee


I was told that it also has another meaning. It can actually mean that they have sexual relationships with there own family members. Cousins and uncles for the most part.

I'm a Lady in her 80's and going out for coffee on a blind date, I told the gentleman I would wear a flower behind my ear, and then I thought which ear, so I looked it up, and I thought How am I going to remember which ear. You gave me the answer to my quandary. But I'm going to be nerviest How will I remember, my memory is as long as my noise, and that's not that long. So when I gave it some thought when your married your rings, or ring goes on your left Hand in most cutlers, but there is no significance with the ring finger on the right hand, so if your single the flower goes behind right ear, but if your married the flower goes behind Left ear, your ring finger of your left hand. Sincerely GP.

This something that old Hawaii did because of white man coming here so they could tell which Hawaiian women were taken or single. I am a married Hawaiian woman who chooses to wear a flower in my right ear. The flower sits better behind my right ear than my left. I do not follow or believe in that tradition. It was created for white man not for our culture.


When I was in Hawaii two years ago I was told if a woman wears a flower behind her head she was looking for an upgrade

What meaning is there if any, for wearing your flower either on the top of back of the head. I understand the left and right ear flower.

So sweet. Flowers is Love. That's why we give flowers to the person special to us and to the person we love most. That's why during weddings we can see flowers. During Valentines we give flower because it symbolize love. So let us give important to the flowers to. Lets love them like the way we love the the person we give flowers
