Why March 21st
March 21st is the “equinox” where equi = equal and nox = night, meaning around the equinox, night and day are approximately equal in length. This symbolically represents the complementary nature of light and darkness, light and shadow as expressed in all human cultures.
Light and colour are inseparable. Colour is always connected with light, without light there would be no colour therefore International Colour day also celebrates the light.
