What Is the Symbolism of Red?

Answer

Red is the color of blood, and as such has strong symbolism as existence and vitality. It brings focus to the essence of life and living with emphasis on survival. Red is the color of yearning, lust, action, confidence, courage. A rice cake in a red box represented a geisha's virginity. It's given to men from a geisha, and they would bid money for her mizuage 'virginity'.
