Members of the International Colour Association, which is composed of national associations and members representing more than 30 countries, set March 21st as International Colour Day. The group agreed to the date because it “is the “equinox”. Around the equinox, the night and day are approximately equally long, symbolically relating to the complementary nature of light and darkness, light and shadow expressed in all human cultures.” (via Wikipedia)
The logo has equal halves one of rainbow colors and the other black representing the light and darkness, day and night relating to the equinox. The two circles are also symbolic of the form of an eye.
I like the symbolism but I think March 21st is a great date because it is the beginning of Spring. This is the time many of us start putting together our plans for what we will do to improve our home exteriors now that warm weather is on the horizon. So let’s celebrate color and the warm weather ahead by thinking about all the color options you have for your home.
