Thank you so much for this. I started studying about biblical color symbolism on the web and read your whole site including comments. I suffer from extreme depression and ptsd. I would love to end the condemnation I live with and be free. Learning colors would be a start. Thank you! I am old, and my favorite color has varied in my lifetime. It currently is green/blue. In any hue of that. It used to be blue/green hues. As a child it was blue, then purple. And various colors of magenta, fuscia, and wine have popped up here and there for like my 20’s- 40’s. It is green/blue now and has been for years. Especially in moving water – it really recharges me.

I’m simply fascinated by your website and the meaning you tried to find behind Colors! I was just now trying to find a proper website in such regards. And your simple explanation just got my mind!
Moreover I don’t know why – but since the beginning I felt you were originally danish – without reading your BIO, then guess what, I’ve got known your origins. I still remember the magnificent Color of the sky in Copenhagen.
Thanks for such website!

Your content and writing style have commandeered my attention this morning! I will need to bookmark you so I can get on with what I thought would be my day. 😉
Lately, I’ve been into pink. A casual photographer, I found myself drawn repeatedly to my own photos featuring all varieties of the color. The practice became a little addictive because it generated a consistent feeling close to euphoria.. certainly JOY! My next step was researching a bit on Color Psychology and Chromotherapy. This is how I arrived at your site today.
It occurs to me that with world natives so very restless as evidenced by current events, the color pink’s connotations of unconditional love and self-acceptance provide me respite and even hope. Thinking it could do that for others, in the last two weeks I put together a website inthepinkphotodigitaldownloadgallery.com which will at the least keep ME ‘in the pink’ and may have positive effect upon viewers. Then there is that ‘ripple effect’ – who knows what might just pacify those restless world natives! I will place a link to your site on my Color Effects Links page.
I am so impressed with your offering, and know you are changing lives for the better.
A suggestion: The About Me material placed atop your Menu, for easiest locating.
14. January 2020 at 10:39
Thank you so much for your kind comment. I’m happy you enjoy reading my site and find it useful. I definitely do believe colors can make the world a better place.
Excellent advice about the menu – I actually changed it recently and forgot to include my about and contact page, but now they’re back!
15. January 2020 at 15:01
And so am I (back)! 😉 There’s so much of interest to read. Please keep writing, and I’ll keep reading! Annette
15. January 2020 at 16:03

Thanks – I will 🙂

I just found this site, amazing, my very first read, in that my cell phone let me on the internet this morning. I have been looking for these answers for a long time, wondering if I choose a specific cod, when I try to personalize one of my Dreamcatchers for a person. Do you mind if I ask what your favorite color is, and it would be nice to hear back from you. You gave me more answers than I’ve ever gotten. PS. I could never decide whether green or blue was my favorite color. Thank You! Georgene Hensel – Yreka, California. Age: 70.

Thanks for visiting. My favorite color is blue and it has been for as long as I can remember 🙂

What an interesting webpage you got! I too have worked with colors for a long time, both from a spiritual side, and from a scientific! I and my father (retired psychologist) ran the Swedish Max Lüscher-Institute between 2006 – 2014.
We trained therapists and psychologists in the Max Lüscher color test, and we are the only two people allowed (by Max Lüscher) to train and inform in Sweden about this magnificant, psychosomatic test!
The Lüscher color test gives you a fast and precise insight on your emotional balance, and what to do if you have an imbalance! The test is based on more than 80 years of research, and is the most widespread test of it´s kind.
I would be happy to do the test on you if you are interested!

Hey Jacob, I was searching for yellow color meaning and google sent me to your website. I love your content and I used a bit of the yellow color meaning from your blog as a resource to write a blog post. I hope you don’t mind, also I shared a link of your website on my page.
Thank you for sharing your passion for colors, you just got me so interested in color meanings. xoxo

Hi jacob, I read your article on chakra and I loved it the way you explained. I am building my gemstone sterling silver e commerce website and on my website I am creating a page which gives user information about gemstone and chakra. Will it be ok if I copy your chakra content and put it on my website chakra page?
6. May 2019 at 18:25
Thanks for your comment. I’m glad you enjoyed the article 🙂
Just a little friendly advice: The best approach to online publishing is to write unique content and then include a link to your source. This will benefit both you and your readers.

Have you ever heard of anyone who “sees” a certain color for a person’s name? For as long as she remembers, my friend Carole, who is 65 now, “sees” a certain color in her mind for almost every first name she hears. Until she was around 7 she thought everyone did!
Example: Cindy is silver. Arthur and Denny are both olive green. ALL Cindys, not just a certain Cindy. A color doesnt come into her mind when its in a foreign language or when the name is a modern, very unique name.
I really enjoy your sight and have enjoyed learning so many new things! Thank you and i hope you continue to write about colors!

Thank you so much for your pages. Personally I am really interested in colors and the effect of them on us in every day basis. I use a lot of colors in my designs, and think that colors can surely bring happiness to our lives. I think we could use a lot more colorful patterns in senior homes, mental hospitals etc.
Right now I found especially interesting the color use in Japan, since I am working on a project to Japan. Thank you!
23. February 2019 at 08:06
Hi Jacob, thanks for the meaning of colours in Japan. We’re planning on gifts for our Japanese flat renters and that was the information needed.
14. February 2019 at 23:51
Literal answer to my prayers. I have just decided to start writing in my Bible (scary for me). I have been praying about what type of color scheme to use for highlights, underlining etc. There are so many Bible markings systems that are inconsistent color-scheme wise. For example, whereas I now know that red represents “Blood of Jesus, love of God, blood of lamb, atonement, salvation” many systems use red to represent STOP, sin, Satan, bad things, etc. Completely different! I started underlining last night and was really uncomfortable with my decisions on topic colors. I found this site in the nick of time! It has completely changed the way I was going to go using colors in my Bible and I now feel completely at peace. Thank you so much! Site is beautiful as well!

Hi Mr. Olesen; I like your name Jacob. Father God speaks to me faithfully through dreams. So I did my homework and have read James Goll’s book Dream Language that sets a excellent Christian foundation on the topic. I use a few dream dictionaries as well. Holy Spirit helps me to arrive at the correct interpretation in the end. I appreciate your site and am glad that I found it. Your site looks clean and bright and the colour meanings are accurate. Thank you Jacob!
22. February 2017 at 02:16
This website is wonderful!! It has helped me so much in an important essay I am writing for school. It has been a great resource and insight for me! I am using it for a piece on the Disney women stereotypes throughout the years, and your comments about the colors match perfectly to what I want to say. Thanks so much for your extensive info!
3. February 2017 at 04:24
Hi thanks for the balanced insights on the color black-not completely ominous and forboding like other sites yet it was realistic in that there may be downsides to this color. Your page helps me understand why I saw myself as I did-beautiful in black-which I absolutely couldn’t figure out

Just a quick comment to say thank you. I really like your website and how you describe the meaning of colours. I have created a website called knowmoresayless.com and I have included some links in my first post to your website. I was going to write the colour meanings myself but you have done such a great job so I put the links in instead 🙂 I will refer to your website again in some of the course material I am developing. Thanks again.

Hi, Jacob! My name is Anna and I’m from Russia. I write my course work dealing with color naming and I want to clear up something. Firstly, a positive meaning of blue is associated with sky, heaven etc, but what is negative meaning (to feel blue=to be depressed) associated with and why? The second, I’ve studied some lyrics and didn’t exactly understand what meaning of blue is used there. Can you write me by email to discuss these issues, please. rezannka @ gmail.com

Hi Jacob. My name is Tim and I am from Long Island, NY. I am planning on opening up my own comic book / game store and I am doing tons of research in how I should paint, display and merchandise my new store. I came across your website and was very impressed on your knowledge about colors and how they influence people to make purchases and how they can turn you off. I have alot of questions but the main one is comic books use all types of colors on their covers so I don’t know what color or colors vwould work the best to accent the different books? Thank you.

Hey first time finding your site. In response to your request about your website, I’d like to say it is so beautiful… The colors and layout. I was particularly drawn to your logo picture in the center, even with the fonts you chose to spell “color-meanings.com”. I love the blue green hues. When I first looked at it upon opening the home page, I felt a warm sensation. Just saying… that’s me. Thank you. I wouldn’t have said anything if you didn’t have that request on the sidebar. Very interesting. I don’t usually respond in blogs. So that’s something. ? P.s. I haven’t even seen your content yet, but will certainly do so. Thanks

I would like to reprint it (giving credit to you and your website) for our monthly newsletter. Would you mind? We are trying to inspire and encourage our residents with the latest trend with coloring for seniors. I think your article spells out the MAJOR benefits of this activity! Thank you !
26. April 2016 at 19:25
Thanks for your interest.
I would be honored to have my website mentioned in your newsletter.
Let me know what the residents think of it.

Cool website and you are the top link on google for color therapy and drawing… I’d love to hear what you think of our beta app– we are building curriculum for color lessons and mapping color perception… let me know or check out our site to join.
11. April 2016 at 00:15
I enjoy the spectrum you maintain. Colour from the beginning to end, and all at once, a continuous and unending sphere of wondrous radiance, life itself;
Colour = Truth = Law = Nature = Universe = Sense = Knowledge = Earth and Sky = Father and Mother = Daughter and Son = Husband and Wife = Adam and Eve = Jack and Jill = Hansel and Gretel = Cat and Dog = Up and Down = As Above So Below = Existence = All that Is = Everything = All = Knowing and Unknowing = Light and Darkness = Black and White = One = Spectrum = Light = Life
Let Us all be Our full selves and recognize who We are, in the Garden of Our Mother under the Light of our Father, Peace on Earth in the Kingdom of Heaven. Amen.
My house is the deep purple of the skies, my bedroom is the green of nature, and my bed is the colours of the rainbow – my way of saying that I love the colour purple, my favourite; that green I adore, my precious one; and that I play and revel in red, orange, yellow, especially green, blue, indigo and violet, while holding my two favourite colours most precious and dear, always and naturally of course, since they are my parents and gave me life. There are none I love more.
thank you, and peace, Robert

I have a mind and body health ebook and wanted to make the cover to represent more of its theme, which is body, “Spirit” and mind. So I went to the web and found your website. It is wonderful with the information presented and with your information, I will choose more colors to signify and symbolize the words “body,” “mind” and “Spirit” on the book’s cover.
If you would like a complimentary copy, I will be happy to sent you one for the opportunity to pick your brains more because of being a graphic artist. You will have some insight with design and color and for the trade, I will mention your website in the acknowledgement part of the book, if you wish.

Great information on your site about associations with colors! I was just wondering what your credentials are, especially since there aren’t citations for the psychological effects or cultural associations with various colors. This information could be really useful for students learning to analyze connotations, and having some information in your bio about how you know this information would make it a better resource. Thanks again for the helpful information!
