According to surveys in Europe and the United States, pink is the color most often associated with charm, politeness, sensitivity, tenderness, sweetness, childhood, femininity and romance. A combination of pink and white is associated with chastity and innocence, whereas a combination of pink and black links to eroticism and seduction. In nature and culture Etymology and definitions The color pink is named after the flowers, pinks, flowering plants in the genus Dianthus, and derives from the frilled edge of the flowers. The verb 'to pink' dates from the 14th century and means 'to decorate with a perforated or punched pattern' (possibly from German picken, 'to peck'). Pink rarely appears in nature, which is why it was first used as a noun to refer to a color in the 17th century. The verb 'pink' continues to be reflected today as the name of hand-held scissors that cut a zig-zagged line to prevent fraying that are referred to as pinking shears. History, art and fashion The color pink has been described in literature since ancient times. In the Odyssey, written in approximately 800 BCE, Homer wrote 'Then, when the child of morning, rosy-fingered dawn appeared... ' Roman poets also described the color.
