Colors have always symbolized different things in different parts of the world. Today, purity is symbolized by white in the U.S., but by blue in India. Purple and red are symbolic in the religious context. Cardinals traditional wear red and bishops wear purple. Today, purple symbolizes evil in Japan, but by blue in East Asia and yellow in France. Black is a symbol of death in the U.S. Green symbolizes danger in Mexico and envy in Belgium. It can get very confusing depending on where you are.
Thanks to a movie, currently I'm seeing lots of people wearing pink. What does it symbolize? To me it has represented happiness. Last week, I saw a group of ten men and women at a restaurant dressed in pink. They were all very happy, and judging from their lively conversation they seemed to be truely empowered. I walked away wanting to knit in pink.
