Colour is a sign. It has a signifier, which is the particular shade of light, and a signified, which varies and is determined by human perception and by the feeling sparked by light radiation.

Colour is generated by light. Without light we have not colour. So, colour is light and being light is a form of energy, that generates different emotions
