New Orleans Colors.

There are Mardi Gras colors all around the NO. The traditional colors of Mardi Gras are purple, green and gold. These colors are said to have been chosen by Grand Duke Alexis Alexandrovitch Romanoff of Russia during a visit to New Orleans in 1872. This doctrine was reaffirmed in 1892, when the Rex Parade theme "Symbolism of Colors" gave the colors their meanings: purple - justice, gold - power, green - faith.        Via Wikipedia
