To lovers, it spells love; to warriors, it spells blood and to everybody, it spells danger: the colour red. Ever so powerful, that it signifies something whether on the lips of a woman or on the carpet upon which the famous walk.

To some of us, however, red is more than just a colour: it’s a symbol. It symbolises one’s first Valentine, a late friend’s favourite t-shirt and the feeling that goes through one when one experiences any kind of pain. For most of us, especially, it symbolises Hong Kong, our spectacular mutual home, in all its red glory- the flag, its taxis, and the MTR’s Tsuen Wan Line.
As a colour, it has both negative and positive connotations, but one cannot go through life without being affected by it. And just like everything that has its ebbs and flows, red hence has its undeniable significance. How fortunate are we, then, to possess the gift of sight and see red!

【在光譜的那一端】

有這樣一種顏色——對愛人來說,它意味著愛情;對戰士來說,它代表了鮮血;對我們每一個人來說,它傳遞危險的訊息。這就是紅色。紅色本身充滿著力量,它或是女人的紅唇,或是名人走過的紅毯。

對於一些人來說,紅色不僅僅是一種顏色,更是一種象征和標誌。紅色記錄我們的初戀,讓我們想起朋友最喜歡的那件T恤,也或許使我們回憶起在苦痛折磨時內心的無力掙扎。對我們大部分人來說,紅色更突顯了香港的活力——彼此的家。在香港,紅色處處可見——區旗、的士、地鐵的荃灣線。

作為一種顏色,紅色同時傳達著積極和消極的含義。我們每一個人也都註定會被它所影響。但是就像所有時漲時退、起伏不定的事物一樣,紅色有不可否認的重要意義。能看到紅色,接近紅色,進而感受它的魅力,我們是何等的幸運。
