Colour plays a very important role in the world in which we live. It causes reactions, such as changing the way we think, the way we feel, it can irritate or sooth eyes, and even raise blood pressure.
Part of the reason blue is an important colour is that it has been proven to be calming, reduce stress, improve relaxation and even give the feeling of freedom.
As blue is such a calming colour, it's good for insomnia, and can generally improve the way that people sleep. For example, as blue is known to calm, it will create a deeper, more peaceful sleep, which is good for general health.
Not only are these things amazing on their own, they will improve the health of your general well-being, which will lead to a longer life.
Midnight blue has a strong sedative effect, allowing us to connect to our intuitive and feminine side. Blue is good for creativity, and encouraging creative thinking.
Blue is good for our minds as well as our bodies; blue can reduce inflammation, and be useful for stings and headaches.
So as you can see, blue is a vitally important colour; it will not only improve the health of your mind, body, and general well-being, but your mood, sleeping patterns and the overall length of your life.


Great introduction raised by Pro. Like my opposition has stated, colour is essential to how we live in this world. To fully comprehend the importance of a colour, it is necessary to touch on as many aspects as possible, which I feel Pro has poorly considered.

I'll get right down to it:

Pro has addressed the positive psychological aspect of the colour blue. The colour blue significantly decreases your metabolism. It is associated with depression, manipulation, frigidness, sadness, predictability and weakness. On the other hand, we have yellow. It is, psychologically, the happiest colour. It denotes cheerfulness and optimism. It is the colour of enlightenment, creativity, sunshine and spring. It is the colour that resonates with the "left" or "logic side" of the brain, stimulating mental faculties and creating mental agility and perception. Yellow is the best color to create enthusiasm for life and can awaken greater confidence and optimism. It also helps with decision making as it relates to clarity of thought and ideas. Yellow helps us focus, study and recall information, useful during exam time.

Onto the next topic I'd like to touch: cultural importance.

Yellow can be seen in cultures all across the globe, and its significance is undebatable.
In almost every culture, yellow represents sunshine, happiness, and warmth. In many religions, it is most associated with the deity (particularly in Hinduism and Ancient Egypt). In Japan, yellow represents courage and in other Eastern countries, yellow is considered imperial. It is worn by brides and is a symbol of joy. It represents Buddhism and in Thailand is considered the royal colour, the colour of Monday, which is the King"s birthday. In Africa it is reserved for those of high rank. Buddhism believes yellow represents wisdom, and in India and China, yellow is entirely sacred.

Also highly significant, is yellow's impact on modern-day society.

It would be hard to meet somebody who has never seen yellow used as a sign, on a cyclist's vest, or on a road cone. These things all share something in common. Caution. Safety. Precaution. As you may or may not know, yellow is the most visible colour on the spectrum. It is the first colour processed by the human eye, hence as to why it is used on cautionary signs, emergency rescue vehicles, and on many other things which demand our immediate attention. It's the colour that captures our attention than any other colour and peripheral vision for yellow is 2.5 times higher than that for red. Long story short, yellow's visibility literally saves lives and prevents major accidents.

A couple of extra facts on yellow include:
- If you buy a yellow car, you are considered "joyful and young at heart".
- 75% of pencils sold in the United States are painted yellow.
- It is the only colour that reacts badly to black, and therefore, no dark shades of yellow exist.

The arguments with I have just laid forward are what I believe to be the main aspects of colour. In all of these categories, yellow is no underdog. It is not only psychologically powerful but can be used to improve safety in our society. It only one of the colours that manages to be unique and useful at the same time, only one of the many reasons as to why I, and many others, love this colour so.

Thank you for challenging me to this debate! Can"t wait for your response.
