Blue sky, blue sea, blue rope. Blue is often associated with depth and stability, symbolising trust, loyalty, wisdom, confidence, intelligence, faith, truth, and heaven. Blue may also mean being rigid, deceitful and spiteful, depressed and sad, self-righteous, superstitious, too conservative, unforgiving, aloof and frigid. Blue is the colour of chefs’ sticking plasters and the Virgin Mary’s dress.
