    They are all good, but green is the color of life.

    Hey this thread is only about seven years old... but I never posted on it. In reviewing the thread there were several posters that I recalled... that I haven't seen much of lately...anyway so what color is the Baha'i Faith?

    The color green seems to be mentioned a lot because of the imprisonment in barren mountains and traveling across deserts so the Green of Gardens and well watered trees were valued..

    "One day of days We repaired unto Our Green Island. Upon Our arrival, We beheld its streams flowing, and its trees luxuriant, and the sunlight playing in their midst. Turning Our face to the right, We beheld what the pen is powerless to describe; nor can it set forth that which the eye of the Lord of Mankind witnessed in that most sanctified, that most sublime, that blest, and most exalted Spot. Turning, then, to the left We gazed on one of the Beauties of the Most Sublime Paradise, standing on a pillar of light..."

    ~ Baha'u'llah, Epistle to the Son of the Wolf, p. 136

    Not exactly. Hinduism is dull red ochre (Buddhist monks wear clother of a darker/brighter hue). We term the color as 'Bhagwa'.

    Even diamonds have colors - Mahayana, Vajrayana, Theravada, Pure Land. There were many others in history. :)

    I think the gold (Truthseeker) and teal (Juan) are going to look great next to each other. Sort of like the sun and the ocean, both great spiritual metaphors. (In fact, that gives me an idea...) Thank you both!

    For the Baha'i Faith the concept of color is interesting one. The color of Bab ( made the first delaration of the new age in 1844) was green, but the Baha'i Faith in the Revelation of Baha'u'llah the color appears to be white where the diverse colors of all the religions merge into one white light described as follows.

    "O CHILDREN OF VAINGLORY! For a fleeting sovereignty ye have abandoned My imperishable dominion, and have adorned yourselves with the gay livery of the world and made of it your boast. By My beauty! All will I gather beneath the one-colored covering of the dust and efface all these diverse colors save them that choose My own, and that is purging from every color." - Baha'u'llah

    Is that not the grave?

    I that not black, or rather darkness, the absence of all colour?

    I don't mean black in the common negative sense, but rather the 'divine darkness', such as that spoken of by Dionysius the Areopagite (6th century):
