COLORFUL FACTS ABOUT ORANGE
History and Lore
The word orange developed from the Sanskrit word naranga. In the early Christian church, orange was a symbol of glory and fruits of the earth. It was also called the wisdom ray. In education, engineering is represented by orange.
Orange is used to designate warning and to point out dangerous equipment such as electrical wires and hot pipes. In marketing, orange is used for packaging because it has a "freshness" appeal (e.g., bread wrappers). Oftentimes it is found in cafeterias, because it has been proven to inspire higher sales. If used sparingly in entertainment rooms, it tends to promote congeniality. In a study room, it gives energy and creative motivation
Orange is found in apricots, mangoes, oranges, peaches, carrots, pumpkins, yams, and saffron.
