The red rose has been a symbol for various movements and languages, particularly Romance-influenced movements.
In particular, the red rose is an icon for democratic socialism. The Democratic Socialists of America use the red rose as their logo. In the UK, the red rose was chosen by the Labour Party as a "friendlier" replacement of the traditionally socialist red flag symbol.
