Today’s Kona Cotton color of the day is Camellia. Camellia is a medium to dark pink on the Ooo La La scale!
Camellia’s are flowers. They can be red, bright pink, medium pink, light pink, all white or a mixture of pink and white. They are commonly found in eastern and southern Asia. You may or may not know that most flowers and colors of flowers were used to symbolize feelings or emotions about people hundreds of years ago. For example: red camellia’s symbolized love, passion and deep desire; pink camellia’s symbolized a longing for someone and/or given to someone who is missed. Camellia’s in general symbolized love, affection and admiration. Other flowers also have their symbolism.
