Did you know that there is a meaning behind the placement of flower in a woman's ear?

Wearing of Flower behind ears

If you're in Hawaii and see a pretty lady wearing a lovely flower behind her ear, there might be more to it than meets the eye — if you know the hidden local code. She may be communicating her marital status to everyone around her, but how will you know? By continuing to read, I will reveal the Hawaii hidden symbol to you.

In Hawaiian culture, a flower behind a woman's right ear indicates that she is single. If the flower is behind her left ear, it indicates that she is engaged, married, or dating.

How to easily remember this? The best thing to remember is that a wedding ring is worn on the left hand, so a flower on that hand indicates that she is unavailable.

Share this with your friends and let them guess where you will be placing the flower on your next Hawaii trip!
