Purple Is the New Trope

If there's any color that conjures deep emotions more than blue, it's purple. Purple intensely resembles violet, which is the highest visible color on the human light spectrum, just before the (technically invisible) ultraviolet. It is a color that can be created in painting by combining red and blue paint. Purple as a color has symbolized royalty since antiquity, though in many cultures until recently it wasn't considered a separate color from red. In modern times, purple is a very exotic and powerful color, while at the same time not being very subtle. Besides pink, purple is considered one of the most symbolic colors of the LGBT community, and occasionally associated as a color of solidarity between gay people and their straight allies.
