Stop 'N' Go - Colour Theory Posted on 15th November 2018

Though it maybe self-explanatory as to why we’ve chosen the red and green for our Stop 'N' Go safety gloves we thought we would dig a little deeper and give you the psychological reasons behind why we associate red with stop and green with go.

The colour red can be used to communicate a number of ideas depending on its context, it can be associated with love and matters of the heart or as the colour of blood and violence. In this instance, we associate red to be the colour of danger. So, when the hand signal shows red on the palm it means STOP, it’s dangerous to go.




Green is often used to communicate nature and the environment, often due to how often the colour green shows in our surroundings. Green is also known to help alleviate signs of depression and anxiety which is why television guests will often wait in a ‘green room’ to relax before going on air. You can see for the most part the colour green has an overall positive and calming vibe. This is is why when the hand signal shows green it means GO, it’s safe for you to do so but proceed with caution.
