Being half red, many of the characteristics of red are found in pink. A warm colour, pink is welcoming, and stands for romance and passion. Paired with red, and sometimes white, pink is the colour of St. Valentine's Day, a holiday based on showing love to the people around you.

Pink is also a delicate colour. Perceived as feminine in the United States, it is also the colour of innocence and purity in Japanese culture. I always associate pink with spring, and most of the flowers that bloom, like the cherry blossoms. In giving pink flowers, the general sentiment is that of gratitude and friendship, an appreciation for another person over all.
