The blue colour has some very special meanings in Judaism.
Blue in Judaism is used to symbolise divinity, because blue is the color of the sky and sea.
It can also represent equilibrium, since its hue suggests a shade midway between white and black, day and night.
In the Torah, the Israelites were commanded to put fringes, tzitzit, on the corners of their garments, and to weave within these fringes a “twisted thread of blue (tekhelet).”
The oral law requires that this blue thread be made from a dye extracted from a sea creature known as the hilazon. Maimonides claimed that this blue was the color of “the clear noonday sky”; Rashi, the color of the evening sky.
