Happy St. Patrick's Day! What is it about the color green that makes you feel so wonderful? According to color-wheel-pro.com, green symbolized growth, harmony, freshness and fertility. It also has a strong emotional correspondence with trust or safety.
The color-wheel-pro.com site also points out that since green is easy for the eye to process, it's a healing and peaceful color to look at. Green is becoming a big color for companies to symbolize their involvement in the sustainability movement. (Ahem, Monsanto and BP have green logos). Ironically, green is also the color of money!
