anonymous asked:

I have a question: but is there some meaning to the sylleblossoms? Like does it have some type of symbolic meaning? I mean, it's a very beautiful flower and it represents the sweet bond between Noctis and Luna but... I'm a little lost. I felt like it was supposed to have a deeper meaning... what you think? ^_^ have an awesome day!

Hey there!

Oh yes, I absolutely think there is a bigger meaning to the Sylleblossom then just the bond it represents between Noctis and Luna, which is of course very sweet but also a common form of love symbolism etc. Now just a little warning I am gonna nerd a bit about colours and design thingies here, because I love your question! xD

Now do take in account that some of these statements also involve my own interpretation and thoughts. The Sylleblossom is a designed mixture of 3 other flowers: lavender, nigella, and iris (according to the wiki).

Now what do these 3 flowers and their structure and colours stand for? The colour Lavender represents royalty and is used in real life different cultures as a status thing (higher class, refinement etc ).

The Iris stands for many things as well, for example: royalty, faith, wisdom, hope, valor, and is named after the Greek Goddess ‘Iris’. A messenger to the gods who was thought to use the rainbow as a bridge between heaven and earth. I kinda make the connection here to the task and duties of the Oracles of being the bridge between the humans and the astrals.

The Nigella has some very interesting meanings and symbolism to it (in what we saw back into the game). It represents (has the symbolism) the chains that bind people together – usually in love, but sometimes in bitterness. They are also said to express perplexity and intrigue, and are often given as gifts to tell the recipient that the giver is fascinated, or simply has a crush. Luna giving Noctis a sylleblossom into the notebook might have been an indication of her, having a crush on him.

We can also see blue and white. Blue can be compared with Lavender, but above all it represents calm, trust, responsibility and From a color psychology perspective, blue is reliable and responsible.

This color exhibits an inner security and confidence. You can rely on it to take control and do the right thing in difficult times. It has a need for order and direction in its life.This is a color that seeks peace and tranquility above everything else, promoting both physical and mental relaxation.

White, which we see a lot in the house of the Oracle represents purity, innocence, goodness, heaven, safety, brilliance, illumination, understanding, cleanliness, faith, beginnings, spirituality, possibility, humility, sincerity, protection, softness, and perfection etc etc etc.

So, we can conclude that these flowers were carefully selected into the design process of creating  the Sylleblossoms and the different meanings behind them, which are all combined into this fictional flower.

Now the Sylleblossom, is a symbol of the royal lineage of the Oracle (royal family). We can see on the front the Cosmogony cover of what could be the very first Oracle, just selected by Bahamut. Holding a bouquet of what appears to be Sylleblossoms:

It also can be seen on the Oracle ascension coins:

Even the late Queen Sylva wears of what appears to be patterns of Sylleblossoms upon her robe:

So yes, there is a lot more to this flower then just the bond between Noctis and Luna. But if we take into account what this flower stands for, and how Luna basically shared a Sylleblossom with him, could be a indication of giving a part of herself to him (spiritually of course). Since it represents her existence line.

But just think about her death scene too, they walk among a field of Sylleblossoms, could it all have been part of her soul fading away kind of symbolism? It’s truly fascinating and awesome to think about, as that scene has so much symbolism to it. We see through out the game that after her death, her presence and spirit is represented with falling petals of the sylleblossom.

It is the symbol of the Oracle.

Anyways anon, thank you so much for this question and I hope I answered your question a bit with this.
