Some will look at these two colors and think: “new baby girl” or “new baby boy”! Trust me, at first, I did not like it at all.  I stopped to really think about what those colors really mean – why would Pantone pick these two colors?!  Then it came to me.  When you really look at the colors together and the shades of the colors, they symbolize so much. Here’s some cheesy for you and something to think about regarding the meaning of the colors…

It’s the birth of something new.

In our world today with the shootings (I read somewhere that the San Bernandino one was the 355th shooting this year!), sadness, and devastation, we have to remember that there’s HOPE.  These colors together – the blending of these colors – is suppose to symbolize new beginnings, the need to blend our communities for something great.  It’s exactly what Pantone says – “reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace”.

Together, we can make great things happen.
