What Different Colors Symbolizes?

The meaning of colors can vary depending on culture and circumstances.

In literature, certain events represent certain things and the colors that show up in the events can symbolize the meanings of those events. Red is often used in gothic literature to symbolize passion, aggression and intensity. Yellow is a joyous, intellectual color.

Color symbolism in art and anthropology refers to the use of color as a symbol in various cultures. There is great diversity in the use of colors and their associations between cultures and even within the same culture in different time periods.

Each color has many aspects to it but you can easily learn the language of color by understanding a few simple concepts .

Blue is seen as conservative. Red is power and aggression. Brighter colors such as yellow and orange represents warmth not only with emotions but also with temperature. Cool colors are blue, green, black or any color with a dark shade.

In other eastern cultures, red is worn by brides on their wedding days. In South Africa, however, red is the color of mourning.
