Some interpretations of color are clearly stated in scripture while others are only implied. The Holy Spirit also gives revelation as to the symbolic meaning of colors. Below are some I've compiled. Please keep in mind these colors are in relation to their use in dyeing. In other words - when working with light, white is the compilation of all colors and black is the absence of color, but - when working with dye - black is all the colors and therefore the essence of God in His beauty and multifacetedness (yes I'm making words up, but you know what I mean!) :)

Special thanks to In His Shadow Creations for their color list which helped me as I got started!

Note: All colors have both positive and negative meanings - this chart documents the meanings used in conjunction with the scarves we create (I have yet to have black in a scarf mean "sin" and yet that is one of the meanings for black).
So, if you are using this
color chart for dream interpretation or other uses where both positive and negative meanings are needed, you may also want to reference another color chart like the one listed above.
