Meaning of cyan[change | edit source]

  • Cyan is associated with making someone feel better and protection, as well as being associated with good health from getting exercise by going swimming. This is because the water in a swimming pool is usually colored cyan from having a plaster white bottom that reflects the blue sky. The tiles of a swimming pool are often colored cyan, which makes the cyan color of the water in a swimming pool even more intense.
  • Cyan is a restful, calming color that symbolizes relaxation, especially that shade of cyan called bright turquoise (shown below) which can be the color of the water in lagoons in tropical countries where people go swimming on their vacations.
  • That shade of cyan that is called medium aquamarine (shown below) is used for the uniforms of nurses and surgeons and also used to paint rooms in hospitals because it is regarded as a color that calms and relaxes the patients.
