Post Habsburg Rose
For my art class I was required to create a portfolio in order to store my work.
My portfolio is Marie Antoinette themed with Marie Antoinette on one side and Louis XVI on the other. I was planning on having ribbons on either side of the portfolio to secure it at the sides. White ribbon on Louis XVI's side to symbolize the lilies. From what I've read I've understood that roses were a symbol of the house of Habsburg. What I haven't been able to find out is what colour the roses in question are.
Does anyone on this board know what colour the roses were supposed to be?

Hi Louis Aguste,
I know about the rose being a symbol of the Hapsburgs, but I have never heard about a particular colour...Anyway there should be an old thread somewhere on this forum , dealing with the rose as symbol of both the Habsburgs and MA.
Anyway, your portfolio must look lovely! You had a great idea :angel8:
