Color Symbolism

Does a color have only one definition?


We all know what color is, and that it has a definition/mood that it gives you, but does it give you just one mood? I researched and found out that it does have more than one definition and it's different variations have different meanings to. Not only that it also has different definitions in different cultures.

The Man

The man above this text box is the man we all knew discovered gravity. Well did you know he also discovered color as well. I just thought that this would be a nice little easter egg.

(I know what you're thinking. Just ignore the funny looking cartoon man.)

Examples of what I Mean

Back to all seriousness, I know what you're all thinking, get on with it. Colors have different meanings, like red for example. Red means anger but it can also mean love. Those two definitions are completely different. Also in Japan it can sometimes mean happy. See what I mean? Another example is blue, it can make you sad. Although it can make you feel calm.

How is this connected to the book?

This is connected to my book because before Jonas understood the meaning of color, he didn't even know what color was. In his eyes, everything was like before they had color recordings. Sameness is so weird. Maybe when he first learnt about color he thought it was meaningless.

Does a color have more than one definition?

The answer to that question is yes. Not only that but even it's colors variation definition differs. That's because it a mix of two colors so it combines the two emotions.
