"The constitutional suffragists, adherents of the National Union of Women’s Suffrage Societies (NUWSS), used red and white from as early as 1906, and added green in 1909. (...) The militant suffragettes of the Women’s Social and Political Union (WSPU), on the other hand, used purple, white and green from 1908 on – the colours that many today think of as symbolising the whole of the women’s suffrage movement" The colours stand for loyalty, purity, and hope.
