I am giving you the following information about the meaning of the COLOR RED and in addition I am informing you that you REGISTER by WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 30th.
Red is, along with yellow and blue, one of the three primary colors of visible light.
Red is also one of the three primary colors of the RGB (Red - Green - Blue) display system used in color displays.
This color is associated with various symbolisms.
Since ancient times, the chlamys of the soldiers of ancient Sparta, the Macedonians, the Romans and also the Byzantines have been red (the purple color in the clothes and sandals was a prerogative of the emperor). Today in literature as well as in everyday language it is associated with fire, love and its various manifestations (e.g. "red roses" but also "red lanterns"), anger and danger ("red cloth").
In traffic signs the color red symbolizes prohibition or danger, red lights on the back of the car warn, the red flag on beaches prohibits swimming due to weather conditions, and is an international danger signal for ships when they run aground. Also using the red flares means danger. Fire engines, vehicle sirens and rotor-alarm lights are the color of fire, while the Red Cross and Red Crescent use this color in their symbols against an always white background, generally as a symbol of "non-flammable" and of the offer of help.
In politics, red was the favorite color of the European left and was used by the socialist and labor parties, and after 1917 it became politically identified with the Russian Revolution, the Soviet Union and the communist parties. Later, the Nazis also adopted it in the Nazi Party flag, due to its strong effect on the masses.
In the field of sports, the color red, alone or in combination with another, is identified with support for specific clubs (red and white, blue and red, etc.) or national teams.
It is also the favorite color of the manufacturers of fast luxury cars, most notably Ferrari.
