The Magic of Colors … Dark Violet

A color that represents the harmony of universe in Chinese painting because of the nearly similar parts of Red and Blue – yin and yang:

A color which we also find quite often in nature.

Or didn’t a violet run through your mind, the lovely little plant with the heart shaped leaves?

Some crocuses are colored in this tone too.


Interestingly they use to wrap chocolate in a kind of dark violet paper in the UK. This should express a kind of luxury, due to a connection to royal purple.


Violet is a symbol of change, a symbol of transition.

So the Catholic Church use violet as a liturgical color in Advent or in Lent.
