Perhaps no color is more primal than green. From the grass under our feet to the leaves on the trees to the rainbow in the sky, green surrounds us. A symbol of growth and energy, green also is considered a balanced color. In the rainbow as well as the visible light spectrum, green is close to the middle.
No color is closer to nature than green, yet it’s also the color of money and plastic toy dinosaurs, soda bottles and Starbucks logos. It’s the Green Monster at Fenway Park as well as The Hulk and Kermit the Frog. Green is associated with paradise – but also with jealousy, sickness, poison and, for a brief period, the devil.
