Meaning "under the rose" in Latin, the term 'Sub Rosa' is used in English to denote secrecy or confidentiality. The rose as a symbol of secrecy has an ancient history stretching back to before ancient Egypt where it symbolised the initiative unfolding of divinity.

The rose itself has a deeply symbolic significance in many times and cultures as a symbol of maternal creativity and of the feminine generative power.
