Symbolic Value

Violet is cleansing, strengthening, awaking, stimulating to emotions, power – the color of the king, dignity, honor, inspiration, spirituality, artistry and peace. Violet was an imperial color in ancient Rome. The Greek priests at Eleusis wore violent robes, showing just how long spiritual qualities have been associated with violet. Violet flowers were used in ancient festivals because people believed that they would protect them from headaches and drunkenness.
