red

red

Arguably the most interesting and evocative color.  To me it always represented passion, alternatively Communism, or just plan STOP maybe.

 

Red is evoked from light that is primarily from the longest wavelengths discernible by the human eye.

In some cultures, certain shades of red are used to symbolize anger or aggression.

It is the color of blood when it is exposed to sunlight.

In western countries, it is most commonly referred to as a color of evil, love, and sometimes, though rarely, happiness.   

Evil and love? Red you are a strange one
