It is obvious that colours carry a heavy freight of meanings and symbolism, but they also appeal to emotions and sensations, and to memories, above all when they are saturated in symbolic connotations, and the communicative direction is clearer. When they are comprised of different shades, when they contain greys, mixtures, connections and interactions among them; that is when they test emotions and feelings.

The language of colour forms part of systems of communication and meaning which have become established, or which have become subjected to variance, over time. And so, sometimes they become a seduction, or a rejection. And it is clear that colour may be understood as a weapon, as it has been many times; colours have been codified in many languages and signals, such as in flags, which, used in defences and attacks, have aroused vindication and provocation, but which have also offered camouflage and rescue. Animals react differently to certain colours, and so do we. Colour as information may be used as a signal, whether for enticement, or to warn of danger or attack. But colour never works in isolation. It always interacts with the surroundings. One colour ends where another begins, and no matter whether we may wish to cover or hide it, the contrast between them will only emphasise each colour even more.
