Blue, the color of the sky and sea, is associated with depth, stability, trust, loyalty, wisdom, confidence, intelligence, faith, truth (true blue), tranquility and heaven.

Blue is chosen to denote security (uniforms such as the Revolutionary War bluecoats) and power (blue is the favorite corporate color as in “Big Blue”, IBM).

Blue can also denote sadness and depression, as in having “the blues.”

Blue pigment is a primary color in the subtractive color system: when blue is mixed with white pigment tints of lighter blue result; blue mixed with black produces shades of darker blue. Blue + Yellow = Green; Blue + Red = Violet; Blue + Orange (blues' complement) = shades of bluish gray and orangish brown.

The word cyan from the Greek kyanous is a range of blue hues and is used to refer the color of ink in the CMYK print process. The pigment Prussian blue, one of the first synthesized pigments (1706), is used in “blueprints” for architectural and technical designs, and has come to mean any detailed plan (which fits in nicely with the association with authority).


Blue Quotes ~
• “It suddenly struck me that that tiny pea, pretty and blue, was the Earth. I put up my thumb and shut one eye, and my thumb blotted out the planet Earth. I didn't feel like a giant. I felt very, very small.” ~ Neil Armstrong
• “To steep oneself in the sky. To capture the tenderness of the clouds. To let the cloud masses float in the background, far off in the gray mist, and then make the blue blaze forth.” ~ Eugène Boudin
• “Sun-bleached bones were most wonderful against the blue - that blue that will always be there as it is now after all man's destruction is finished. ~ Georgia O'Keeffe
• “There is no blue without yellow and without orange.” ~ Vincent van Gogh

The Blue Violinist
Marc Chagall

“Marc Chagall embraced the philosophy that love colored his paintings. Focusing extensively on his childhood, his happy, optimistic paintings defy the poverty of his upbringing in a Russian Shtetl. After a brief time in Paris, Chagall escaped to the US during World War II where his career reached new heights including a rare exhibit during his lifetime at the Louvre.”

James Peale

The bluecoats worn by Continental Army soldiers of the Revolutionary War were modeled after George Washington's uniform, and according to orders of June, 1780, the general officers were to wear blue coats with yellow buttons, lined and faced in buff with yellow buttons, two epaulets and white or buff waistcoat and breeches.

Today most executive departments of the federal government have primarily blue flags (the presidential flag, for example).
