Significance of Colours of Holi

Every colour says something. Auspiciousness is associated with red, peace with green, vibrancy and happiness with yellow, love with pink, vastness with blue, purity with white, sacrifice with saffron, and knowledge with violet. Each person is a fountain of colours that keeps changing its hue. Lost in the herbal colours where each colour has its significance, we all become one with the crowd. Coloured clothes, coloured faces and joy in the heart erase every identity attached to the person since birth.
