What Colors May Symbolize in Your Religion
As you consider the various types of durable fabrics for your church chairs, pews, and benches, it helps to keep in mind what some of the colors may symbolize in your religion. See the list below for some common meanings of these colors.
- Red—In Christianity, red is the color of blood and fire. It’s often used in liturgical churches as the color for Pentecost to commemorate martyred saints. In Judaism, red symbolizes blood and sin and can stand for fire and judgment.
- Green—For Christian churches, green is often associated with plant life and spring, representing the triumph of life over death. It’s also used as the liturgical color for the Trinity season and Epiphany in some congregations.
- Blue—Blue is mostly associated with Judaism because it is the main color for Hanukkah, but it also represents the sky and spirituality. In ancient times, the Israelites utilized a special dye, known as tekhelet, that gave a vibrant indigo color to their clothing, sheets, and curtains. The Torah had commanded them to dye a single thread of their prayer shawl with tekhelet. The blue thread serves as a reminder of the vast blue sky above them and that God in Heaven watches over them.
