Summary
This day is set aside to oppose bullying and celebrate the color pink.

National Pink Day was established in 2007 in Nova Scotia Canada. A boy was bullied at school for wearing a pink shirt, as pink is seen as feminine. Two of his classmates bought pink shirts and passed them out to the entire student body the next day. The entire school wore pink in support of the child. This soon became a national holiday against bullying. Now the holiday has become a worldwide event against bullying.

Pink is a color that is a pale tint of red and is named after a flower of the same name. It was first used as a color name in the late 17th century.

Pink symbolizes youth, good health, and playfulness. It's the flush of first love and stands for nurturing femininity. It's used as the symbolic color of the movement to support breast cancer research, and we think of pink as an innocent, cheerful color.

In Europe and the United States, pink is often associated with girls, while blue is associated with boys. This association only dates back to the 1940s, and before that pink was sometimes used as a boy's color.

  • Did you know? In Thailand, pink is associated with Tuesday on the Thai solar calendar. Anyone may wear pink on Tuesdays, and anyone born on a Tuesday may adopt pink as their color.
