Other florists like to use flowers that represent the bold colors of the American flag.

Many florists love statice for its color, stem quality, longevity and flower size.  Statice remains a mainstay in Veterans Day floral arrangements because of its beautiful, bright, deep, purple-blue flower clusters.

Guardian Blue Delphinium is another option for the blue hue in floral arrangements. This flower is well-loved for its long-stemmed royal blue blossoms with soft hints of purple.
