25 Most Colourful Rangoli Designs With Flowers

Rangoli is a decorative and colourful design made on the floors especially during festive occasions. These are considered sacred and are meant to serve as welcoming areas to Gods.

Rangolis are usually colourful (though you can find monochrome designs too) and are made using several materials like flower petals, rice, flour etc. In Eastern and Southern regions, Rangolis are made using a mixture made of grounded rice mixed with water, and are specially called Kolams (in Tamil Nadu).  So each region has its own ways of doing their rangolis.

Of these myriad designs, Flower rangoli is something we all love and since it’s very popular across the country, we have selected the top 25 Flower Rangoli designs which you can use for ready reference the next time you are drawing one.

The most common flowers used in Flower ranglois are are daisies, roses and marigolds. Not just flowers but leaves are used in flower Rangoli too. So let’s quickly look some of the most popular Rangoli designs.

All in all, this is a fantastic design for any occasion and can be done on even anniversaries or weddings too.

2. This one also includes loads of colours which makes it a very colourful Rangoli. The center of attraction is the Diya. The orange colour of the Marigold becomes the primary colour in this rangoli and the white and purple spiral shapse on the border adds to its uniqueness.

3. This one is a rightful justification for the term – Flower Rangoli because it’s a Rangoli in the shape of a real flower and is made up of flower petals as well. We love how the five petals of the flower in the rangoli are done using multiple coloured flower petals. We also love the added rose petals in the center of the design.

8. Lord Ganesha is one of the most worshipped gods in India and he is said to give everyone ‘Siddhi’, the power and knowledge to attain one’s dreams.

Likewise here we see him in this beautiful flower Rangoli which can be done on any religious occasion.

11. Indian dances especially the traditional dance styles and dancers have been a source of inspiration for many artists for centuries.

The colours used here are simple and green grass is used as the base and yellow and saffron marigold petals are used to create the design. Purple coloured flower petals are used in some places. The highlight of the design is surely the lotus flower used in the centre.

17. Diwali is a very special festival all over India and we simply love this cute and simple attempt at Flower Rangoli. In this Rangoli, unlike the usual techniques, whole flowers are used to do the design. Yellow daisies are used to make the borders and only rose petals have been used instead of the whole rose flower. It is quite unique and we feel this is suitable for those who are too lazy to spend too much time on the rangoli. A short and easy design — isn’t it? This is the most perfect of all flower rangoli designs for diwali.

20. What do you get when you add flowers and diyas and Ground Chakras? Well we think you will get something like this Rangoli which resembles the effects of a Ground Chakra. So what’s a ground Chakra? It is a firework which when lighted, turns in circular motions making whirlwind patterns on the ground. It is used especially during Diwali. So now you understand why we  love this Diwali inspired Rangoli. Truly a great way to celebrate the spirit of Diwali.

All in all, it’s a nice blend of traditional and modern techniques.
