During times of war, they used it in their war paint to represent endurance. They used the plans around them to make paint and jewelry that they could wear to gain the properties the color represented to them. Green is also traditionally associated with money, finances, and jealousy. Many people assume this association is because money is green. You may have heard the expression that someone is green with envy too. Green is such a luxurious and coveted color that many people believe is represents what so many people want, and only a very few can have. This is another reason so many people wear it with pride.
