The Meaning of the Color Green

Green represents growth. It is the color of flourishing hearts and souls. It is the color of wealth, abundance, and prosperity. It is the color of money in many cultures, positive gains, and assets.

Green is all about expanding yourself, both as a person and as a material being. It is the color that gets us going and on the move. To give someone the "green light" means permitting them to move forward at full speed ahead because it is safe to do so.

Green is also the color of the planet. You've heard the phrase "go green". It means to do good by the planet. This huge Green movement brings awareness to humanity that we are a part of the earth and not owners of the earth. Somewhere along the timeline of existence, we forgot this concept and separated ourselves. People have abused the earth and paid for it, and now we hope to find the way back to balance.

Yet, green goes even beyond the planet. It is the color we associate with aliens, and the popular meteoric mineral Moldavite.

The Dark Side of Color Green

On the other hand, green could also signify jealousy, ailment, and disease. Have you heard of the Green-Eyed Monster? It means that jealousy is lurking its ugly head. If someone or something is looking green, it means he, she or it is undergoing ailment or disease.

What about the color green for healing? Let's find out...

    Cultural Significance of Green

    Green is a meaningful color in cultures around the world. Find out what it means in each. 

    Western Culture

    Green symbolizes luck. The shamrocks and lucky four-leaf clovers come to mind as historically seeded symbols of protection and good fortune. Leprechauns, gnomes, fairies, and sprites are portrayed with green. Even animated creations like Tinkerbell and Shrek are adorned in green. They are lucky, magical, and natural.

    Color Green represents Ireland, Scotland, and Wales. With its plethora of rolling hills and Saint Patrick's day traditions, green is celebrated in these countries.

    In the Christmas tradition, green represents the eternal life of Jesus. It's no coincidence that green represents the cycle of life, as it's reflected around the planet. 

    Green in the global meaning represents trees, forests, and nature. The American organization Green Peace fights to save the Earth, while the political Green Party has a focus on environmental issues as well. The green camouflage of the military uniform has come to mean freedom and safety, although its coloring is for functional purposes of blending into the woods.

    Americans associate green with money. The dollar is green and green signifies profits. With the growing movement of marijuana legalization, green reminds many Westerners of this natural herb as well. 

    Eastern Culture

    Eastern culture shares many of the green meanings as Western culture. Green is a symbol for the planet and Mother Earth. The green light is universally signifying safety in movement.

    Green is a color of abundance, fertility, and youth. Chinese cherish the cabbage as an auspicious symbol of fertility, which yields an abundance of children and grandchildren. Jade is the most meaningful gemstone in Asian culture because it represents prosperity and good luck. Yet a Chinese man cannot wear a green hat because it means that his wife cheated on him.

    In India green represents new beginnings, harvest, and happiness. Again this relates to the theme of earth and all the abundance it provides. Because green is tied to happiness in Hinduism, a widow is not supposed to wear the color green.
