Intuitive Flowers Colours and Emotions

Emotions: The Colours of a Rainbow Apr 20, 2019

“Colours are the smile of nature.”

Leigh Hunt

There are many popular saying that associated with colours, like, ‘feeling blue’ when someone is down or depress, ‘green with envy’ refers to when people are emotionally unwell from wanting what someone else has, or ‘feeling grey’ when someone is feeling gloomy and miserable. 

For centuries, colours have been associated not just with emotions, but also scientific finds. Whilst Sir Isaac Newton discovered that the entire electromagnetic spectrum is made up of ultraviolet, infrared, and visible light, the human eyes can only see the visible light of the electromagnetic spectrum. This comprises the colours are what you see in the rainbow.

Each colour in the visible light spectrum also has its own wavelength and vibration, the first colour that you see in the rainbow which is red is the longest and strongest whilst violet is the shortest and the weakest.

Colours have a direct link to your emotions. Some colours can inspire uplifting or exciting feelings, whereas other can leave you to feel drained and blue.


The white colour is often associated with purity, innocence, and goodness. For example, a white bouquet of roses means ‘I’m thinking of you’. Most of the time, bridal flowers that are used in weddings are also white.


The red colour often suggests violence, seduction, and anger. But it can also mean the exact opposite – love, passion & intense emotions.


The colour yellow means happiness, optimism, and enlightenment. Yellow also means friendship and generally associated with the positive feelings.

Colours also speak louder than words and depending on what colours that you are using to associate this emotion, it can be either easy or hard to distinguish.

Colours can imply different emotions and there is a psychology behind it. They can depict both positive and negative emotions. Just by observing the colours used, anyone can know the feelings that you have at that moment.
