Green is associated with tranquility, balance, peace, new life, it represents safety, regeneration, fertility, rebirth…Our natural environment is predominately green and green plants help our survival by providing oxygen. Politically, green represents environmental protection and social justice. In contrast green also represents sickness, envy, illness, decay and the devil. Our eye can recognize more shades of green than any other colour.
Green is my favorite. And it’s my favorite because it’s the color of my wife’s eyes, grass, trees, life, and money, and mother earth!
Casper Van Dien
