Purple is the theme all throughout the book and shows her transformation: she does not buy the purple fabric because she does not think she is royalty; purple is the color of bruising; she makes the comment about ******* God off if you walk by the color purple and don't notice it and then at the end she has a purple room, and accepts that she should treat herself like royalty.<br />

Purple embodies the balance of red simulation and blue calm. This dichotomy can cause unrest or uneasiness unless the undertone is clearly defined at which point the purple takes on the characteristics of its undertone.<br />

A sense of mystic and royal qualities, purple is a color often well liked by very creative or eccentric types and is the favorite color of adolescent girls.

I also see where the author may have used the color purple in the title to show that God may want us to notice the suffer (significance of the color purple for bruising and pain) experienced by Jesus on the cross and by God having to let this happen helplessly in order to diminish sin on earth, (a difficult choice for a parent to sacrifice their only child).

... and now a word from Wikipedia ...<br />
The title of the book is a very important symbol. Celie goes through life having a hard time noticing the beautiful aspects and appreciating them. She had a difficult life and was abused as an adolescent. The color purple is continually equated with suffering and pain. Sofia's swollen, beaten face is described as the color of "eggplant." Purple is the color of Celie's private parts: the site of her sexual violation. [4] However, later Shug points out to her that you have to enjoy life. When they were in a field of purple flowers, Shug tells Celie to look at the flowers and embrace their beauty. You must look at all the good and acknowledge them because God placed them all on earth. After learning this, Celie has a better respect for life and everything it has to offer.
