Symbols - What does heaven look like
The water lily has almost the same symbolic meaning as the lotus.
It has its roots in the ‘Earth’, its leaves float on the Water layer , its stem then rises up through the Air and its flower opens up like a crown chakra as the Higher Spirit accepts spiritual nourishment from the Sun [the Creator] – see Trinity symbolism. It is also roughly speaking in the shape of a cross, the sign of the ascent of man and the cardinal directions in the Egg.
