Many people wonder how the colors of Mardi Gras originated, so here's the quick history: Before one of the early Mardi Gras parades in 1872, the King of Carnival declared that all balconies should be decorated in gold, green and purple. New Orleans residents continued to decorate their balconies in these colors after that declaration, and in 1892 their parade's theme was "Significance of Colors" and definition was assigned to the colors. Gold was to signify power, green was to signify faith, and purple was to signify justice. New Orleans residents have been flying these colors ever since.
