The heavens are blue. Therefore, heavenly beings, whether gods or angels or saints, use blue -- usually sky blue -- to show their relationship, as do beings associated with them. Much more likely to be Good than Evil. May be used only as accent in Gold and White Are Divine.

Often a major color in Fluffy Cloud Heaven.

Compare Purple Is Powerful.
