Purple is the colour for Saturday, for planet Saturn and for Shani, 'celestial judge'. Another colour for Saturday is black, traditionally the colour associated with death, funerals and mourning. Purple and black are my favourite colours, even if black is actually not a colour but the absence of colour itself, at least while considering black as the complete absence of light, and therefore the absence of colour, and the full spectrum of light, and therefore the sum of all colours.
