Church Pew Ropes
Love it or hate it, it’s everywhere! The color burgundy is commonly accepted as a conservative, classic color...but why? While some may correlate the color with the hilarious movie line “I'm Ron Burgundy?” There has to be a reason that the shade has become such a standard for a variety of things from grandma's old shag carpet to new dark red altar candles for church.
Altar Candles, Royal Robes, Church Pews: Why Burgundy?
When trying to understand colors even if it's something from a dream, the first place one may begin is what the color represents. In burgundy's case, the symbolism is wealth, ambition, and power. The shade may put us in mind of ancient royalty, a childhood memory or whatever caters to each person's own memories and personality. The question remains...why has burgundy become such a popular color not only in the world but particularly in religion? It is prominent throughout churches around the world--down to the church candles and even the candle accessories.
The Practicality Behind the Color
There are functional reasons one may choose to shop around or place orders for products of this color when they are filling their shopping cart with supplies. For example, no one will notice the red wine that was spilled on your burgundy rug--it will be well hidden within the deep red pigment. Maybe the reason is more personal since the dark color can be reminiscent of Christmas and even romance.
Perhaps it's a more reasonable choice since it can be a beautiful way to make something look conservative without being plain black and white. It’s muted enough to be appropriate, not overly loud, but can add just enough light color to not be so dull and gray. But with such a strong meaning, this intriguing color must mean more than just a convenient way to add a pop of color to candle wax or hide a splash of high-quality wine.
Religion and The Color Red
Perhaps pew reservation ropes are largely burgundy because red is mentioned in biblical texts and church service as the color of humanity that comes at a price. Not to mention, the deep shade of burgundy is the color of fellowship wine. Pretty big symbols and reasons for the church to gravitate towards the color burgundy.
