Updated: Apr 9

Blue is everywhere. In the modern world, at least. The intangibility of blue is a key to many of its symbolic meanings.




The colour blue represents both the sky and the sea and is associated with open spaces, freedom, intuition, imagination, inspiration, and sensitivity. Blue also represents meanings of depth, trust, loyalty, sincerity, wisdom, confidence, stability, faith, and intelligence.




The colour Blue has Positive Effects on the Mind and the Body.


Blue can represent rest and can cause the body to produce calming chemicals that release feelings of tranquility. Blue is also cooling in nature and helps with balance and self-expression.








Lighter shades of blue have more calming effects and feeling of freedom. Darker shades talk more about authority, professionalism, integrity, and sincerity. Blue colour represents truth, and is the colour of communication. Psychologically, this colour portrays qualities of being neat, less fussy, and disliking confrontation and change.

Blue creates a feeling of trust and loyalty, and hence, is used in most corporate logos across the world. It is also an appetite suppressant. Some people, however, believe blue can be depressive.
