The colour pink represents compassion, nurturing and love.

Pink is feminine and romantic, affectionate and intimate, thoughtful and caring. It is intuitive and insightful, showing tenderness and kindness with its empathy and sensitivity. It’s a sign of hope, inspiring warm and comforting feelings, and a sense that everything will be okay.
