Use of color in art • What do colors represent in our emotions? • Symbolism of Color: Using Color for Meaning • Like emotions, colors also symbolize different things. Color symbolism can have a powerful effect on human emotion.
BLACK • The color black represents evil or sadness. This is why the color black is used more in funerals. Black is also used when celebrating birthdays of people reaching middle age. The reason for this is that everyone is supposed to be sad that the person is getting old. When black is used this way, it also becomes funny. We call this irony, but that topic is for another time and another website.
WHITE • The color white symbolizes purity and life. This is why you see the color white in weddings and usually see angels dressed in white gowns. Color symbolizes different things in different parts of the world. For example, in Asia and the orient, the color white is considered a sad color. Colour symbolism is also important to companies around the world. When we think of certain colors and shapes we think of certain companies. McDonalds had yellow arches, Starbucks has a green and white symbol.
