Purple symbolizes magic, mystery, spirituality, the sub-conscious, creativity, dignity, royalty – and it evokes all of these meanings more so than any other color. Purple appears in fruits and flowers and even on the feathers of some birds!
Purple was once considered to be a regal color and only royalty could wear it! In Japan, the color was referred to as “Imperial Purple.” Today anyone can wear purple but it’s still a color that is associated with nobility and prosperity, especially the rich medium-to-dark shade called “Royal Purple.”
Purple, along with pink, has started to become linked as a “girl’s color” and so it is commonly seen in girl’s toys, clothes and room furniture. However, purple can be enjoyed by either gender and any age.
Purple is a rare color to find on flags (only two flags contain the color) but it is frequently used as a staple color for social clubs, weddings and even colleges. NYU (New York University) is famous for its highly unique and noticeable trademark purple that has become iconic of the school and the materials (like shirts and mugs) related to it.
