    I really like the blue ones and the green one. Do the colors have significance?

    Technically, Orthodox canons only specify light v. dark. However, over the centuries, most Orthodox clergy have adopted some of the Western liturgical colors, but only some. White from Pascha to Assumption, for example. Gold is the default.

    Thanks for the response. As a follow-up, what are some things that would call for light colors vs. dark colors?
    Thanks, this is an interesting topic.
