Daw Aung San Suu Kyi's code of dress: Symbolism with play of colors?

Daw Aung San Suu Kyi's code of dress:
Symbolism with play of colors?

UN Secretary General's Special Envoy Ibrahim Gambari has visited Burma three times and met with Daw Aung San Suu Kyi on:

1. 11 November 2006
2. 30 September 2007
3. 2 October 2007
4. 8 March 2008
5. 10 March 2008
totaling five meetings.

During those meetings, Daw Aung San Suu Kyi wore:

1. Yellow colored dress in the first meeting. This could be inferred as "hope" for the likelihood of dialogue.


2. In the second meeting which occurred after the Saffron Revolution of 2007 September, she was dressed in blue, implying "sorrow."


3. In the third meeting she wore a pinee (traditional fawn-colored cotton fabric) shirt which could be inferred as "grief" for monks and wish for "serenity."


4. In the fourth and fifth meetings soon after her message "Hope for the best and prepare for the worst!" came out, she was dressed in bright red, which should be implied as the "battle call" of our era's second Independence struggle just as her father Bogyoke Aung San had called for "Independence or Revolt!" in 1947 under British rule during the first Independence struggle.

.... the rest of the template goes here...
