Each sorority and fraternity have their own national colors that that symbolize their own uniqueness and Specialty to the girls and boys in each house. Colors are also use a separation and differentiation between each house and use as a symbol of each house. The colors can be coordinating or complementary but are ultimately meant to the purpose of distinguishing form other houses. Shirts, the flag, backpacks, and other items that can represent the houses have these colors. I think the colors can be nice if they are colors one likes otherwise it must be annoying to wear colors one does not like to wear.
