The Meaning of the Colour Purple

I have chosen the colour purple to be used in this design. Not only is it one of my favourite colours but it is feminine without being over the top. I found the information below on a website that describes the colour purple as:

'Purple is the color of Spirituality. It urges us to find our power within, not the kind of power that needs to control or dominate others, but power rooted in connection to Spirit. A good color to use in meditation. Soothes mental and emotional stress. Purple is associated with wisdom, dignity, independence and creativity. Purple has been used to symbolize magic and mystery. Purple is a favorite of creative people. Whether wearing it, living in it, or creating with it, purple is a color for the adventurous heart with spiritual leanings and a flair for drama. This is the heart that knows the magic of purple. Purple is a combination of blue and red. Red is a focusing, dynamic and active energy while blue is cooling, calming and passive. The coalescence of liveliness and tranquility allows more creative energy to emerge. For this reason, purple is associated with imagination and inspiration. Light purple such as lavender is feminine and romantic. Purple is the color of dignity and self-respect ... it imparts determination and feeling of being in control, clears the mind of negative influences, calms nervousness and relieves stress. Purple is associated with royalty. It symbolizes power, nobility, luxury, and sophistication. It conveys wealth and extravagance. It is also feminine and romantic. However, because it is rare in nature, purple can appear exotic or artificial.'
