Red has also been widely used in art, from the days of the Renaissance to today's contemporary art. Additionally, the color Red was utilized in Byzantine dresses to showcase status.

Red is seen as a color of love, primarily used during two of the biggest holidays of each year, Valentine's Day and Christmas.
