Green Sweatbands, Headbands & Color Meaning
Green Power: Optimism, Healing and Balance
Green is all about balance and nature. In fact, green is the most common color in the natural world. It comes in a close second to blue as the color cited by people as their favorite, in both the U.S. and Europe.
Green is one of the healthiest colors on the spectrum. When you wear green sweatbands, you are connecting yourself to the energy of the earth. You’re also keeping the sweat out of your eyes.

What Is Green?
Green is between blue and yellow on the color spectrum. It is a primary color, along with red and blue. When you mix those three together—red, blue and green—in differing amounts, the specialists in colors say you can make every other color.
The word comes from grene, which is Middle English and Anglo-Saxon. These people really didn’t know how to spell. The root word comes from a German word meaning grass and grow. It has long meant that you are safe. It gives people permission, like a green light that says you can drive ahead safely.

They often have beautiful surroundings--not necessarily grand, but harmonious and charming. People who like green can make good decisions because they are balanced and know right from wrong.
It’s not true that all people who love green are Irish. But you’d have to look far to find a true Celt who doesn’t love green.
Green and Red Commercials
On the color spectrum, there are naturally complementary colors. Certain pairings cause energy, drama and impact. According to studies, red and green paired up and next to each other can actually cause the eye to vibrate with energy.
Not sure what that says about Santa Claus. But in the National Football League, the New York Jets and the Buffalo Bills played a dirty trick on fans back in 2015. For four games, they played each other in all red and all green uniforms, looking like Santa’s elves on steroids.
The uniforms were part of Nike’s Color Rush promotion. Nike got the teams to wear the special, all-one-color uniforms as a way to publicize their new line of clothing. What better way to grab attention than hijacking four nationally televised football games.
The fans didn’t appreciate it. The outfits the big elves were wearing got labeled “stupid” and “torture.” The 8% of the country that is colorblind, which usually includes red and green, couldn’t tell what players were playing for which team.
Green and Other Sports
Green has a more positive effect in auto racing, where the green flag means the start of the race. The green belt in judo tells wearers to push achievement high, just like green trees pushing to the sky.
Billiards tables are green. Since billiard cues are heavy, especially if you play a couple of games in a row, players might benefit from green wrist sweatbands to keep their hands sweat-free.
A famous French soccer team is called “les Vets,” the Greens. The Mexican national soccer team wears green.
Very appropriately, the Boston Celtics basketball team wears green uniforms. And probably green basketball headbands to go with them.
So if you are looking for greener pastures for your athletic endeavors, don’t forget the wearing of the green sports headbands. They will enhance your natural sense of balance and optimism.
