GREEN is More then Just a Color

What does GREEN mean to you? Is it the the color of a shamrock (or even beer!) on St. Patrick's Day? The color of grass when Spring arrives? Kermit the Frog? A dollar bill? Or.... is it the new environmental trend?

The answer is "D", all of the above.

Color Wheel Pro states "Green is the color of nature. It symbolizes growth, harmony, freshness, and fertility. Green has strong emotional correspondence with safety. Dark green is also commonly associated with money.

Green has great healing power. It is the most restful color for the human eye; it can improve vision. Green suggests stability and endurance. Sometimes green denotes lack of experience; for example, a 'greenhorn' is a novice. In heraldry, green indicates growth and hope. Green, as opposed to red, means safety; it is the color of free passage in road traffic.

Use green to indicate safety when advertising drugs and medical products. Green is directly related to nature, so you can use it to promote 'green' products. Dull, darker green is commonly associated with money, the financial world, banking, and Wall Street."

So, in honor of the month of March, St. Patrick's Day, Easter and all great things that go with Spring, throw GREEN in to the mix of your next event. Your attendees might give you an unexpected, harmonious response!
