Primrose Day History
Primrose Day seeks to celebrate the lovely yellow flower. Primrose flowers belong to the primula family. There are about 1000 different varieties, but the most common across England is the soft yellow flower.
Primrose Day arose in 1881 when Queen Victoria sent a wreath of yellow primroses in memory of her favourite prime minister, Benjamin Disraeli. From then on, wreaths of primroses were placed on Disraeli’s monument and Primrose Day was formed.
Primrose Day is observed annually on 19 April.
