In religion, purple symbolizes the Passion of Christ (in the Gospel, soldiers throw a cloak of this color on Christ's shoulders); in imperial England, it was the only color that could be complemented by shades of gray and black during mourning, and was considered a gloomy color until the beginning of the 19th century.
