If you deal with the color PINK or ROSA, you stumble on the translation, because the German term “ROSA” is called “PINK” in English.
One of the most controversial colors of the present was the preferred color in men’s fashion until the interwar period of the last century. For example, the “little brother of the color red” appeared in the twenties of the last century, the appropriate color for boys fashion. ROSA was not regarded as feminine or weak at that time, but as a weakened red, symbolizing blood, war and power.
Only through the new class of “workers” in their blue workers clothing the color ROSA or PINK was forced to swap the gender and advanced to the pure girl color with the attributes – weak, feminine, lovely.
