Scandal! Green is the colour of Islam if you are not a RC who is happy with the teaching that in Church tradition the colour green symbolizes hope. Green
is the color of nausea or people who are inexperienced.
However, at Pentecost, the Russian Orthodox Church puts greenery everywhere, so green
is a symbol of hope.Red
, on the contrary is a sign of joy, so it is used at the Nativity.
Remember the slogan "Better dead, than red." Well, red
used to be the color for communism.Blue
is now the color of the dominant political party.
In the Church, however, blue
is the color of the Theotokos.Yellow
is the color to remember POWs and returning GIs, but it used to represent cowards as in "Yellow belly."
Time changes meanings.Red
was used by the British Redcoats to hide the color of blood, or so the joke goes.
? According to that same joke, brown is the recommended color for a French Officer.
