Pink Hermes

A little pink to brighten up the day ๐Ÿ™‚


Brighter pinks are youthful, fun, and exciting, while vibrant pinks have the same high energy as red; they are sensual and passionate without being too aggressive. Toning down the passion of red with the purity of white results in the softer pinks that are associated with romance and the blush of a young womanโ€™s cheeks. Itโ€™s not surprising that when giving or receiving flowers, pink blossoms are a favourite.

Pink is the colour of happiness and is sometimes seen as light-hearted. For women who are often overworked and overburdened, an attraction to pink may speak of a desire for the more carefree days of childhood.


  • Bright pinks, like the colour red, stimulate energy and can increase the blood pressure, respiration, heartbeat, and pulse rate. They also encourage action and confidence.
  • Pink has been used in prison holding cells to effectively reduce erratic behaviour.


  • The pink ribbon is an internationally recognized symbol of hope and awareness in the fight against breast cancer.
  • In Japan, the colour pink has a masculine association. The annual spring blooming of the pink-blossomed cherry trees (the Sakura) is said to represent the young Japanese warriors who fell in battle in the prime of life (the Samurai).
  • Jaipur City is a foremost tourist attraction in India because of its superlative forts, grandiose palaces, vivacious temples, multi-coloured bazaars, pulsating streets, and its distinguished pink colour to which the city owes its oft-used name โ€œThe Pink Cityโ€.
  • The Chinese had not recognized the colour pink until they had contact with Western culture and the Chinese word for pink translates as โ€œforeign colour.โ€
  • Marrakesh is another city associated with the colour pink. It is sometimes referred to as the โ€œRose Cityโ€ because of its salmon-pink collared buildings and the red clay of its terrain.


  • In 1947, fashion designer Elsa Schiaparelli introduced the colour โ€œhot pinkโ€ to western fashion. She dubbed the shade โ€œShocking Pink,โ€ though today the colour is more well-known as โ€œmagenta.โ€
  • First Lady, Mamie Eisenhower, who loved and wore pink so much itย became known as โ€œMamie Pinkโ€.
  • Pink encourages friendliness while discouraging aggression and ill-will.
  • Since the colour pink is said to have a tranquilizing effect, sportโ€™s teams sometimes use pink to paint the locker room used by opposing teams.
  • Some studies of the colour pink suggest that male weightlifters seem to lose strength in pink rooms, while women weightlifters tend to become stronger around the colour.
  • Pastries taste better when they come out of pink boxes or served on pink plates (it only works with sweets). Pink makes us crave sugar.
