The lotus flower is viewed as a sacred flower by Buddhists (the Buddha is often depicted sitting on a giant lotus blossom), Hindus, and the ancient Egyptians. A lotus flower normally has eight petals, which corresponds to the Eightfold Path of Good Law.
The reason for this sacred status has to do with the lotus ability to rise and bloom above the muddy water, which is a symbol of achieving enlightenment in the midst of our daily existence.
The second meaning is purification ~ it resembles the purifying of the spirit which is born into "murkiness".
The flower color has importance to the meaning of the lotus flower in Buddhism:
White Lotus ~ Symbolized bodhi (Sanskrit for enlightenment). It symbolizes a pure body, mind and spirit, along with spiritual perfection and a pacification of one’s nature.
Blue Lotus ~ Symbolizes the control of the spirit over one’s material senses. It also symbolizes knowledge, wisdom and intelligence.
Pink Lotus ~ The supreme lotus, it is often associated with the highest deity, the Buddha himself.
Purple Lotus ~ Known as the mystic lotus, and is only represented in a few esoteric Buddhist sects.
