Today, they remain a symbol of Chinese culture and celebration. The colors of the lanterns are specifically chosen for communication, social status and warnings.

Red Lanterns
Red is a lucky color in China and it shows vitality and maximum energy. Red lanterns are used to indicate a birth or marriage in a household.

Blue Lanterns
Blue lanterns signify that a member of a household has decreasing energy or is sick. It is a warning

White Lanterns
