The History of National Pink Day

National Pink Day has a bit of mystery around its origins. No one really knows who started this delightful celebration or when it began.

But one thing is for sure – it’s all about embracing and enjoying the color pink!

The name "pink" originally came from a flower with the same name.

Interestingly, the word "to pink" was first used in the 14th century, meaning to decorate with a perforated pattern, often with pinking shears.

The association of the word with the color came about in the 17th century, named after the Dutch flower "pinken."

Pink: More Than Just a Color

Though pink is often seen as a feminine color today, this wasn’t always the case.

Back in the 20th century, pink was considered more masculine, as men in England wore red uniforms, and young boys would don the paler shade, pink.

Over time, the perception changed, and pink became linked with femininity.

However, nowadays, the stereotype is breaking, and more men are proudly rocking pink attire and accessories.
