Dating back to the cave paintings of prehistory, red has been inspiring humans for a very long time. Since then, the meanings of red have multiplied, with red taking on a wide range of symbolism throughout history, from love, passion, beauty, and romance, to Holy blood, life, and war, to wealth, power, danger, lust, and adventure, just to name a few. When combined with other colors, red has significant symbolism, such as representing Christmas in Western countries when paired with green. Similarly, when paired with blue and white, red symbolizes patriotism in the U.S. In several Asian countries, red represents good luck, with brides wearing red wedding gowns in Nepal and India for wealth, luck, and prosperity.
