The colour of originality, joy, movement, flow and fun, orange is an optimistic colour of social communication.
This bright hue shines from some of our most tasty and nutritious foods: oranges, apricots, papayas, and saffron. It stimulates, invigorates and encourages healthy appetites.
Orange represents the sacral chakra, and is said to invoke enthusiasm and support creativity. Yet some feel it is over-bright, even abrasive.
Orange is also the colour of autumn, the harvest, falling leaves and pumpkins. In opposition to the black that represents the dark side of Halloween, orange shows the light and fun side.
Often used for decor and clothing in hot countries, orange is an arresting tropical colour that gives the feeling of heat and pleasure.
