In this special setting, the primrose symbolizes the Nativity

The primrose "grows wild today as it has for thousands of years in the Holy Land" and because of this is thought to the the 'lily of the fields' mentioned in Matthew 6:28. Primroses are said to have sprung from the ground at the Crucifixion. The name primrose is derived from Medieval Latin prima rosa, which means first (or earliest) rose, an allusion to Jesus, the firstborn Son of God.
