Why did the color yellow become the color of the struggle for the return of the kidnapped?
To my Art Blog readers,
Recently we have opened the gallery in the port of Jaffa in front of the sea and we have been greeting visitors and tourists who are starting to arrive. But the heart is in Gaza, until the abductees return, and the soldiers come home, it is very difficult to return to normal.
I must say thank you to all my customers from Israel and all over the world who understand the situation and have been supporting Israeli art,
Thanks to you, we are bringing the gallery back to activity.
This post is intended to send a lot of love and strength to the families of the abductees,
And in this context the question that is asked is why did the color yellow become the color of the struggle for the return of the abductees?
Each protest uses a sign that unifies it with its supporters. The families of the abductees chose the color yellow for the cause, seen in the yellow ribbons across the country, yellow chairs around the representative of the long table that is displayed in the square of the abductees in the Tel Aviv Museum and more. The color yellow has many meanings – it is the bright, happy, warm and optimistic color of the sunlight and sunflowers, but also a color that is used to warn us of danger, like a sign that warns of dangerous or ominous substances.
“She wore a yellow ribbon”.
“On her neck she wears a yellow ribbon
She wears it in winter as well as summer.
If you ask why the decoration?
She will answer that it is her distant love.”
Round her neck she wore a yellow ribbon
She wore it in the winter
And the merry month of May
When I asked her: Why the yellow ribbon?
She said: It’s for my lover who is far far away
I hope that soon, we will be able to experience the yellow color in its more relaxing qualities and not as a symbol of struggle.
