The Impact of Colours – Part 4: Pink

 Pink is essentially a light red and is usually associated with love and romance.

 How the colour pink affect us physically: Bright pinks, like the colour red, stimulate energy and can increase the blood pressure, respiration, heartbeat, and pulse rate. They also encourage action and confidence.

Brighter pinks are youthful, fun, and exciting, while vibrant pinks have the same high energy as red; they are sensual and passionate without being too aggressive. Toning down the passion of red with the purity of white results in the softer pinks that are associated with romance and the blush of a young woman’s cheeks. Pink has been used in prison holding cells to effectively reduce erratic behaviour.

Pink around the globe:

– The pink ribbon is an internationally recognized symbol of hope and awareness in the fight against breast cancer.

– The Chinese had not recognized the colour pink until they had contact with Western culture.
