There are many love stories associated with Tulips.
A Turkish legend talks about a love story of a prince named Farhad. He loved a beautiful maiden called Shirin. Their love was not to be and Shirin was killed by those who opposed the match. Prince Farhad was crushed by grief and killed himself riding over the edge of a cliff. Legend goes that red tulips bloomed in places where his blood fell. Thus red Tulips came to symbolize perfect love.
My favorite color Tulips are the yellow ones. I like to be cheerful.
