Orange Definition and Orange Products

The colours orange and yellow have some similar properties. Like yellow, orange is also strongly associated with the sun and with the saffron shade of the robes worn by Buddhist monks. But it's also a symbol of fertility, luxury and love.

During ancient times, orange blossom became associated with fertility, and was used in bridal wreaths to help promote new life and in the hope of the couple being successful in their fertility. The tradition did carry on into the Christian era, but the blossom tended to be regarded more as purity, rather than a focus on fertility. The colour was linked to love and marriage in Roman times too, when brides wore orange veils, which were said to be an emblem of the permanence of marriage.

In other societies, the colour orange was linked with luxury and fire, and in China the fruit is a symbol of good fortune. Each year on the second day of the Chinese New Year, oranges were traditionally eaten in the hope of a fortuitous year ahead.

Being a mix of yellow and red, orange is also said to be the point of balance "between the spirit and the libido."
