Colors



Not only are the colors for Los Dias de Los Muertos beautiful, they are also very meaningful. Here are what they signify:
  • Black for the Prehispanic religions and the land of the dead
  • Purple from the Catholic calendar and to signify pain, suffering, grief, mourning
  • Pink for celebration
  • White for purity and hope
  • Yellow and Orange for the marigold, and the sun
  • Red representing the blood of Jesus for Christians; and for the indigenous people, the life blood of humans and animals
