White :
Perfection and cold
White :
in physics "sum of all light"
White :
cleanness, clearness, innocence (brides dress, veil)
White :
standoffishness, sensitiveness, coolness
White :
not to be mixed up with "colourless", associated with feelings and qualities, which cannot be associated to other colours
White :
appears as the most perfect of all colours there are nearly no negative statements about it
White :
peaceful (dove, lamb, white banner)
White :
cold (the white winter sky) the snow-covered ground that shines in the sunlight, the moist cool mist, white shining hoarfrost on bushes and trees
White :
in Japan the colour of death

White neutralises all colours and seems to be neutral itself, therefore it is considered as a symbol for the innocence and - in some cultures - for death, for the door to salvation.

Since eternal times white is the colour of the Gods and from the antiquity it was the dominating colour for the clothing of the priests. For many people white means the perfect, the ideal, the good.

But white is not white: alabaster-white, blossom-white, creme-white, chalk-white, opal-white, snow-white, ultra-white, wool-white.
