What is your suggestion or idea?

Eliminate the color coding of the values.

What is the reason for your amendment idea?

The symbolism of colors varies between cultures and groups. Assigning a color to a value may or may not align with any individual’s cultural conception of that color.

Have you discussed this idea with your congregation or other UUs?

This is something to consider. I know that in our congregation a few people were concerned that teal was used instead of green. (RE teachers past and present who are attached to the rainbow colors.)
