In fact, one only needs to walk down the street during Mardi Gras time to be surrounded by bright bursts of purple, yellow, green and more, no matter what city they might find themselves in. But what do the colors mean? Every nation possesses its own myths, legends, and history and as such, each will have its own meaning when it comes to color.
