Summary: The heart shape we usually find is the epitome of love and affection. Some people believed the base of this shape was the ivy leaves, which symbolized loyalty or devotion. Despite its popularity, the original creator or roots are difficult to trace. It is common to see various heart symbols on Valentine's Day where people express their love.
What is Heart Symbol?
When you read the word heart what comes to your mind first? The human organ or the red-emoji one? According to the Victorian Health Department, the heart is the muscle that sends blood to all human body parts. It is one of the vital organs that keep humans functioning. Meanwhile, the heart shape we usually find is the epitome of love and affection. Some people believed the base of this shape was the ivy leaves, which symbolized loyalty or devotion. Hence, there is a connection between love and affection to those two feelings. In most cases, the colour of the heart symbol is red; however, nowadays, there is a variety of colours that people use. In the version of the official emoji, the heart symbol has many colours, and each brings different meanings. For example, red means love happiness and gratitude. Yellow heart means friendship and liking. Blue means support, admiration and excitement.
Who Invented the Heart Symbol?
We can find the famous heart symbol almost everywhere we go. It is on our phones, scattered all over the internet pages. They are on the books, on clothes, on the streets, they are everywhere! Especially on a special event such as Valentine's Day, you cannot escape these symbols. There are a few reasons why people obsess over them. Aside from the meaningful message of the shape, its cute and easy-to-draw form attracts many people. Even though this shape does not resemble the physical heart, this simple form works as a representation just fine. Despite its popularity, the original creator or roots are difficult to trace. There are various versions and opinions of the actual history. Professor Peter Stewart from Oxford University said, "even though the pottery from the Ancient Greek era contains many heart symbols, the current heart shape we witness nowadays is from medieval or renaissance invention". There is no concrete proof or explanation of how this symbol relates to love and affection. On Greek pottery, many heart symbols connect with Dionysus (the God of wine). The Oxford professor said that the popularity of this imagery is because of the aesthetically pleasing shape of the symbol. A form that initially had a purpose for representing an actual human organ shifted slowly into an aesthetic yet abstract form which pleases the eyes.
What is the Relation between Heart Symbol and Love?
The heart symbol is tightly tied to the feeling of love and affection. Hence, when someone receives a message with tiny heart emoji at the end from people they love or adore, they might feel giddy and happy. Are you curious about how these cute symbols can represent human feelings? In the 7th century BC, a poet named Sappho wrote a piece of poems with this particular line "Love shook my heart, like the wind on the mountain, troubling the oak trees."
Years later, many Greek philosophers agree that the heart has the most solid connection with human emotions. Plato stated that the heart has a dominant role in love and affection. Aristotle added that the organ is responsible for every human process that occurs. Many people agree that the association of heart and romance is because when we meet our loved ones, our heart beats faster, and we feel the rush of excitement.
Why Valentine's Day is Associated with Heart Symbols?
As we all know, the heart symbol represents love, affection and romance. Hence, it is not weird to witness various types of heart symbols on Valentine's Day. It is the day people express their love for others, such as wife or husband, girlfriend or boyfriend, crushes, parents, children or friends. It falls on the 14th of February. People usually will give various types of gifts to show their feeling. The staple presents during this special day are chocolates, flowers, dolls, and other preference gifts for the receiver. This loving day is popular in the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia. Other countries, such as Argentina, France, Mexico, and South Korea, also celebrate this day in a festive and exciting way. It is the most popular wedding day in the Philippines, and it is not uncommon for hundreds of couples to get married on Valentines's Day. Many people also use this day to spread kindness and love to others, such as people in need, teachers, medical workers, cleaning officers, and more.
How to Teach People to Express Their Love?
Besides academic education, parents should teach children various life lessons, such as showing love. Expressing affection is necessary for children's growth. Many experts agree that it has a beneficial impact on developing the brain of kids. It also helps them to build empathy, sympathy, kindness and self-confidence.
