Lever for Change Colors

Our colors are shades of blue and green. The color blue represents both the sky and the sea and is associated with open spaces, freedom, intuition, imagination, inspiration, and sensitivity. Blue also represents meanings of depth, trust, loyalty, sincerity, wisdom, confidence, stability, faith, and intelligence. The color green is associated with freshness, growth and balance. Because it is associated with the environment, the color Forest Green is frequently used in designs that support the earth and its ecosystem.
