We're learning a lot about the Lions organization and our club, but there's still so much to know. For instance:
What are the official colors of Lions Clubs International?
If you said blue and yellow, you'd be wrong. If you said purple and gold, you'd be right.
These colors were chosen for the following reasons:
Purple represents loyalty to country, friends, to one's self and to the integrity of mind and heart. It is the color of strength, courage and dedication to a cause.
Gold symbolizes sincerity of purpose, liberality in judgment, purity in life and generosity in mind, heart and commitment to mankind.
Often a dark blue is used in place of purple.
So there you have it! We wear purple and gold for a reason, and it's a good reason, for this IS what Lions stand for!
