National Color Day is observed annually on October 22. Color has the power to affect a mood, draw attention, even cause alarm. Colors accent our homes and feed our creativity, allowing us to express ourselves. Open a box of crayons or watercolors and artists of any age lose themselves in a world of their own creation for hours. Different colors are perceived to mean different things. The following is one rendition of the perceived meaning of the various colors in the United States.
Red: Excitement – Love – Strength
Yellow: Competence – Happiness
Green: Good Taste – Envy – Relaxation
Blue: Corporate – High Quality
Pink:Sophistication – Sincerity
