Blue is one of the most popular colors, for design, fashion, and even just simply as a favorite color choice. Maybe the reason that blue is so popular is because of the feelings it evokes. Blue is the color of the sky and water; it is associated with relaxation and calmness, stability and intelligence, and even cleanliness. Many American businesses choose blue for their main brand color, perhaps because of its portrayal of trust.
