Red is the main colour of the Hong Kong flag. The colour red is used to symbolise excitement, energy, adventure, or passion. This colour is worn at Chinese New Year and wedding celebrations. When you wear a red shade you will definitely be seen!
The yellow ribbons have been worn by the protesters lately. Yellow is the brightest colour on the spectrum, making it a very eye-catching colour. This luminous colour is typically the colour that represents happiness, optimism, and creativity. When we think of yellow in the world around us we think of the sun, bright spring days, and blooming sun flowers - no wonder it is associated with such positivity!
Blue ribbons began appearing in support of the police and authorities. Blue is one of the most popular choices for a favourite colour. Every day we can see blue all around us! Blue comes in a wide variety of colours, and each shade is associated with a different type of meaning. The meanings behind the colour blue range from dark blue's authority, to bright ocean blue's clean dependability, to light sky blue's peace and serenity.
The green ribbons in Hong Kong were first spotted being worn by taxi drivers, to support both sides of the protest. Green has been known as a symbol for nature, growth, and life since the beginning of time. We can find blue in nature all around us, and is considered a soothing shade. In modern times green has its own definition, meaning that something is organic and natural. Green is associated with prosperity, wellness, and recognition.
