In Roman mythology, Venus was the Goddess of love, fertility, beauty, passion, sex, and prosperity. The red rose was her favourate flower, and the colour red has long stood for romance.  Venus’s name comes from word 'vanati', a Latin word that means "desires, loves, wins".

Venus’s father was Jupiter, who was King of the Gods and her mother was Dione, who was also the mother of Cupid, the god of love.  Venus was married to Vulcan, who was the god of fire and volcanoes. She also had many lovers, such as a god by the name of Adonis, who was very handsome and for ever youthful. She was also the lover of Mars, who was the god of war.
