Around the world the colour pink represents many things, including love, femininity and nurture. The colour pink lacks aggression and anger and therefore calms our emotional energies.
Most people associate pink with femininity, as well as newborn baby girls, while baby boys are represented by a light shade of blue. This wasn’t always the case, however, as early on, both boys and girls were outfitted in white, as white clothes were easily bleached if they got dirty. Additionally, it has been said that at one point the colours were reversed. Baby boys were represented by pink as it was seen as a stronger colour, while blue suited girls, as it was more delicate and dainty. The blue for boys and pink for girls association didn’t come about until clothing manufacturers and retailers decided on it in the 1940’s.
These days, there are many different shades of pink, all of which represent and are associated with different emotions.
