Mardi Gras: The Meaning Behind the Trinkets

Mardi Gras conjures up thoughts of beaded necklaces, crowded New Orleans streets, king cakes, and more. True Cajuns know the meaning behind these trinkets – but do you? Here are a few fun facts about Mardi Gras to get you some kudos around the water cooler this week.


Mardi Gras Colors – Green, Gold, & Purple


Green, gold, and purple are the official colors of Mardi Gras. No debating that. And where they came from and what they mean… Well, that just depends on who you ask! Legend has it that the colors were chosen by the Rex krewe in 1872 for no good reason except that they liked the way they looked together. 20 years later, the Rex came back and said the colors stood for faith (green), power (gold), and justice (purple).


Other conflicting accounts believe the colors have deeper meaning dating back to Catholic origins and some attribute the colors’ origin to Grand Duke Alexis Alexandrovitch Romanoff of Russia who visited New Orleans in 1872.


Why the beads and “throws?”


Because it’s a parade and it’s fun! The tradition of “throws,” started back in the 1870s when the first parades began. In 1884, modern day doubloons began to be a hot throw, as krewes began to make their own metal coins with their emblem and throw those out into the crowd. Other popular throws include beaded necklaces, cups, and stuffed animals.


Can you explain the King Cake?


King cakes are eaten all over the world during the period of Mardi Gras – the time between the Christmas season and Lent. Originating over 300 years ago to remember the 3 kings looking for baby Jesus, these cakes began as simple bread-like cakes with a bean inside to represent the baby. Now, the cakes are more elaborate – some filled, some with puff pastry, but most commonly, you’ll find them to be a round cinnamon roll-type cake with a hollow center and Mardi Gras colors on top. Find the baby inside, and you’ll be selected to host the next Mardi Gras party!
