Etymology of rose

The first recorded use of rose as a color name in English was in 1382. [ Maerz and Paul "A Dictionary of Color" New York:1930 McGraw-Hill Page 203 ]

The etymology of the name rose is of course the same as that of the name of the flower. The name originates from Latin "rosa", borrowed through Oscan from colonial Greek in southern Italy: "rhodon" (Aeolic form: "wrodon"), from Aramaic "wurrdā", from Assyrian "wurtinnu", from Old Iranian *"warda" (cf. Avestan "warda", Sogdian "ward", Parthian "wâr").

Fashion

* There are many shades of rose and many women like to wear clothing, shoes and lipstick colored in the various shades of rose.

Food
* The color rose is popular among Persians because rose petals, vitamin C rich rose hips and sugar are mixed together in Iranian cuisine with various spices to make rose colored and flavored jams, sauces and syrups. Bastani, Persian rosewater ice cream, is typically served between wafers as an ice cream sandwich.
* Radishes are colored a shade of rose.

Geography

* In ancient Sanskrit, the land now called India was referred to by the ancient Indians themselves as "Jambudvipa", which means "rose apple island".
* British historian John William Burgon famously described the Jordanian city of Petra as being colored rose, writing::Match me such marvel save in Eastern clime,:A rose-red city - half as old as time!
* Marrakech, Morocco is called the "Rose City" because many of its buildings are colored various shades of rose. [ [http://www.easier.com/view/International_Property_News/Morocco/article-107235.html Marrakech, Morocco—The Rose City] .]
* Portland, Oregon, United States is known as the "Rose City" or the "City of Roses" because it has many rose gardens, most notably the International Rose Test Garden.

Holocaust

* The Rosenstrasse protest ("Rose Street protest") took place on 27 February, 1943 during the Holocaust when the Nazis wanted to round up the last of the Jews in Berlin during Fabrikaktion, but were successfully resisted by the victims' non-Jewish marriage partners, preventing these Jews from being sent to Auschwitz. It is the only example in Nazi Germany of a successful non-violent protest against the Holocaust in which the protesters were unharmed. The event is commemorated by a rose colored kiosk in Berlin.

Interior Design

* The "Salon of Mercury" in the Grand appartement du roi in the Versailles Palace is decorated with rose colored wallpaper.

Occult Physiology
* According to New Age author C.W. Leadbeater, who claimed to be clairvoyant, of the seven types of "etheric atoms" that he claimed to be able to observe with his third eye circulating through the human "etheric body" (colored violet, blue, green, yellow, orange, dark red, and rose), the flow of the rose colored etheric atoms (also called by Leadbeater the rose "vitality globule") from the sun into the rainbow colored spleen chakra is the most important since all the other etheric atoms are derived from it and the rose colored atom vivifies the nervous system. Leadbeater also asserted that humans feel good around pine trees because they radiate more rose colored etheric atoms than any other plant. [ Leadbeater, C.W. "The Chakras" Wheaton, Illinois, U.S.A.:1926--Theosophical Publishing House Pages 54-58 [http://www.anandgholap.net/Chakras-CWL.htm Full text of the book “The Chakras” by C.W.

Politics

* The revolution in which current Georgian president Mikhail Saakashvili came to power in 2003 was called the "Rose Revolution".

Prophetic Teachings
* The color rose may be used to represent the teachings of Nostradamus because he originally came to fame, as a result of successfully treating victims of the Black Plague, with a homeopathic formula that used rose hips and rose petals.

Psychology

* To declare that a person is "seeing through rose-colored glasses" implies that they are an optimist, only seeing the good and neglecting to notice the bad. (The opposite type of person, a pessimist, is symbolized by the color gray).

Romantic Love

* In Western culture, the color rose may be used to represent romantic love because it is customary to give rose flowers to one's beloved on Valentine's Day, 14 February. Vexillology

* "Dogwood Rose" was the official descripton of the color of the flag of the nation of Georgia from 1992 to 2004.
