MARDI GRAS COLORS

Galveston, Texas is home to the largest Mardi Gras festival in Texas attracting over 250,000 revelers to the island each year.
The celebration in Galveston dates back 1867 when it consisted of merely a masked ball and a theatre performance of Shakespeare's "King Henry IV."
The emergence of rival Krewes the "Knights of Momus" and the "Knights of Myth" created the first extravagant Mardi Gras celebration in 1871.
The island tradition now includes many night parades, masked balls and exquisite costumes

Since 1872, the official colors of Mardi Gras have been green, purple and gold. The colors were assigned as part of the celebration by the King of Carnival
and have continued to be an integral part of Mardi Gras tradition. Green is representative of faith; purple is for justice; and gold is for power.
