Black color meaning: Black is associated with the hidden, the mysterious, and the unknown. It creates a sense of mystery and keeps things to themselves, hidden from the eyes of the world. With color psychology, black relates to protection against emotional stress. It creates a barrier between itself and the outside world. It provides comfort as it protects feelings and hides vulnerability, insecurity, and lack of confidence. Black is the absorption of all colors and the absence of all light; it hides things, while white brings something into the light. Black has been used for centuries to absorb negative energy and harm. A very popular color for clothing.
