Green and Purple ... The Colors of Hospice
The use of color can strengthen, sooth, and inspire. Hospice colors are green and purple and were chosen because of what they each represent. The use of green is commonly associated with nature and growth. Green represents stability, endurance and peace. The green in the ribbon represents the awareness of compassionate care that hospice provides and the peace that hospice brings. Purple, has traditionally been associated with honor, spirituality and self-esteem. It reminds us of the right that all people have to live with dignity and respect, even in the last moments of their life.
