We are surrounded by diverse colors in our daily lives,
and each color indeed has its own power and narratives.
There is yellow that was loved by van Gogh,
and there is green that killed Napoleon.
This challenge is themed on “Green”.

The difference in views between the east and west is often seen through colors.
While the east usually sees green as the peace of nature
that gives comfort and relaxation.
But, it is often the case where green is seen with negative view in west
as it is used for portraying monsters or devils.

There is also special anniversary where “green” has become symbol;
it is Saint Patrick Day on March 17.
The day commemorates the death of Patrick, who was British and delivered the Christian teachings to Ireland and revered.
Saint Patrick Day first started off as a religious festival when many immigrants in U.S., England and New Zealand commemorated Saint Patrick and it soon developed into an ethnic culture.
On this day, everyone would wear green clothes and drink green beer.
