There are some guidelines for writing an essay, whatever the subject.  In a conclusion, you want to restate your thesis so that it is clear that you have proven it.  Then, you want to summarize your points.  This reminds the reader what your essay was about.  Finally, you end the essay with a concluding thought or call to action.  That way, your reader has the feeling that there was a reason for reading your essay.

It’s hard to offer ideas of a conclusion without knowing what your essay is specifically about. I

Know that it is about flowers as symbols in the visual arts but it depends on context. For example, in your essay, what meanings that flowers symbolize did you focus on? If you focused on flowers as a symbol of beauty, fertility, purity, love, life, sexuality, etc., your conclusion should sum up the reasons why you wrote the essay. This is known as the ‘so what.’ The essay is about the visual symbolism of flowers. In this case, having not read the essay, I would recommend using your conclusion to address ‘why’ flowers have been so effective as symbols in visual art. What about flowers makes them so appealing to visual artists, poets, etc.?
