Lavender earned its name from the flower, and its hue is a mixture of red and blue in their palest shades. The hex code for lavender is #E6E6FA.

Purple, a mixture of red and blue, has been a symbol of royalty and wealth for millennia. In fact, the dye originally used to make purple was so rare and so expensive that only royalty could afford it. Lavender, though a lighter and more gentle color than purple, still creates the same sense of respect. Considered the floral symbol of love at first sight, lavender lends a softness when used in tandem with other colors.
