Red is red, Blue is blue and never the two shall meet

Abstract topics may act as a blessing in disguise. Though they lack a structured framework but provide liberty to get creative and proceed in any possible direction. On the same lines we have provided some possible interpretations which can be further extended.

Conventional Significance

  • Red, the color of blood and fire, is associated with meanings of love, passion, aggression.

Political Significance

  • Apart from their conventional representations, Red and Blue color in the United States have a political significance. The color Red signifies Republican supporters and Blue signifies Democratic supporters.
  • In the Presidential election for the year 2000 and afterwards, television news relied heavily on colored maps to illustrate how close the election between Al Gore and George W. Bush was. Those map colors quickly became popular indicators for Republicans and Democrats, and it was the ubiquity of the maps that caused the colors to stick to their current parties.
  • President Barack Obama denounced the terminology red state and blue state by stating that “the pundits like to slice and dice our country into red states and blue states: red states for Republicans, blue states for Democrats. We are one people … all of us defending the United States of America."
