What colors go on a religious witness bracelet?

People of all ages wear bracelets in specific colours to symbolise a cause they believe in. Religious bracelets, also known as "witness," "salvation," or "gospel" bracelets are created from colours with special meanings. Christian witness bracelets can be one colour, and several bracelets are often worn at the same time. The bracelets can also be created with several meaningful colours. The colour symbols vary slightly from different sources, but most colours have the same general meaning.


Black stands for the sin in our lives. It also represents the reason Christ came to earth and was the sacrifice for every person. Wearing black on a witness bracelet also reminds us to try to refrain from sinning.


The colour red represents the blood of Christ. Jesus shed his blood on the cross for everyone. Scarlet and crimson are shades of red that are also used in the Bible.

Purity is one meaning of the white bead in a witness bracelet. We are made pure by the sacrifice of Jesus. White is also used as a reference for cleansing. Our sins have become white as snow through Christ.


Clear has the meaning of forgiveness. Clear also represents the fact that we are transparent in God's sight. He knows us inside and out.


Blue represents a water baptism. Whether a religion dictates sprinkling or total immersion, a person becomes a child of God through baptism with water. Some references also use the colour blue to represent the Holy Spirit.

The colour green symbolises new life, eternal life, or growing in Christ. The Easter season is usually represented by the term "new life," as Jesus arose from the grave.

If we follow Jesus, we will receive new life on earth and eternal life in Heaven. We are also encouraged to continually grow in Christ throughout our lives.


Yellow reminds us of the light Jesus brought into the world. This colour is also sometimes used to represent Heaven's bright city, which is waiting for God's children at the end of their days.

Gold is specifically mentioned in the book of Revelation. In Heaven, we will walk on the streets of gold. The city of gold also awaits God's people.


Purple stands for royalty, representing Jesus as the King of our lives and the Son of God. Purple also represents the royalty we have become as God's children. Another meaning for the purple is grace, as in God's grace that is freely given to all.
