Liturgical colors are those specific colors used for vestments and hangings within the context of Christian liturgy. The symbolism of violet, white, green, red, gold, black, rose and other colors may serve to underline moods appropriate to a season of the liturgical year or may highlight a special occasion[1].

Since 1969, colors in the Roman Catholic Church include:

  • Green
    • Sundays and Ferias in Ordinary Time
  • Violet
  • Rose
  • White
    • Christmastide
    • Easter season
  • Red
    • Pentecost
  • Black
