"Ladybug symbolism is all about good luck around the globe.
Ladybugs as a symbol of protection
During the Middle Ages it was common belief that the ladybug symbolized protection.
Stories were told about farmers who were desperate because aphids were ruining their crops. The farmers prayed to the Virgin Mary for help.
The Virgin Mary responded to their distressed situation and sent thousands of ladybugs to annihilate the aphids, thus saving their crop.

As a symbol of keeping the person wearing images of ladybugs safe and healthy we can see why ladybugs on baby and child clothing is consistently popular.
Knowing the ladybug symbolism also includes love, joy and prosperity, any person would happily give gifts with ladybug
images on them.
