Facts about White

See also

White is the lightest of all colors. Ivory, doves, and many flowers—like lilies—are associated with the color white. White is also regarded as being a color that presents goodness and light and it is frequently worn in celebrations. However, in some Asian colors, white represents mourning and is worn to funerals.

Along with black, white supposedly compliments every single other color so it can be worn with anything. For this reason, it has become a popular color in the fashion industry, especially during the summer. White is such a light and airy color that it has the capabilities of making small rooms look larger. For that reason it is one of the most popular shades in wall paint and furniture items. It also appears in many flags.

Bridal gowns are almost always white since the color is traditionally representative of virginity and purity. Therefore, most weddings have a lot of white in their decorative theme, from the bride’s dress to the cake to the flowers.

White is also a color that appears frequently in nature. Snow is white as is sea foam and clouds. Many species of birds, like cockatoos, and monkeys, like Gibbons, are white. Polar bears and snowy owls are famous for being white and other animals like wolves, cats and even peacocks can also be white!

White is sometimes associated with “blankness” and “nothingness” (like the number zero) and some people argue that white (like black) is not really a color at all but rather a lack of color. However, given the popularity of white in everything from clothing, to home décor, to nail polish it is hard to argue that white is anything other than a certifiable and beloved color!
