    So red is symbolic, but other colours aren't?

    Oh for crying out loud!

    Read the whole post!

    Of course the other colors are symbolic. But they are symbolic, not for their significance to the Jedi, but for their significance to us the viewer.

    Well, obviously- I don't think that anyone's suggesting that carrying a red lightsaber is a symptom/cause of a character turning to the Dark Side, are they?

    So what's your take on the green/blue/purple symbolism?

    My take: Blue symbolizes the Unifying Force. Green, the Living Force, and red, the dark side (of course).


    So purple would be a mix of the dark side and the Unifying Force.

    remeber taht the only reason Lukes saber was greeen was because they need a color to show up against the desert nicely. They did use blue but it didnt show up well, so they used green. Now the color of the saber "in theory" is how the light is refracted from the "crytals" as mentioned earlier. Now either it is all up to prefernse or skill in creating a saber
