What do the different colours lightsabers represent?

As a Star Wars fan, one thing I have always been curious about is why there are so many different colour lightsabers, but after a bit of research it has all become clear.

Lightsabers themselves are powered by crystals in which the Jedi and Sith shape the crystals themselves to make their own weapon. As a result of this the final weapon is really an extension of the wielder and responds to the way they use the Force. In terms of the variations of lightsabers, there are 11 different colours: Red, Orange, Gold, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple, Bronze, White, Black and Silver. Each of these colours has a different meaning also. 


The Blue lightsaber is made for protecting users. The Blue lightsaber has been used by the likes of Obi-Wan, Aayla Secura & Ki-Adi-Mundi.

The Green is used by Peace Users such as Luke Skywalker, Yoda, Qui- Gon Jinn, Jacen Solo, Kit Fisto, and Ahsoka Tano.

Yellow is To keep the Sith away and to patrol the galaxy users, as seen with Plo- Koon.

Red resembles not growing naturally and has users such as Palpatine, Darth Vader, Count Dooku, Darth Maul and Darth Craidus.


Purple is used by people who were Sith for a short time then became Jedi such as Mace Windu, Mara Jade Skywalker, Jana Solo, The Dark Woman, Kit Darren, and Jaden Kor.

Orange is used by negotiators consisting of Yaddle as well as Plo-Koon who has also wielded this colour.

Gold resembles very high skilled users like Q – Ron.

Bronze lightsabers are rare and used for strong Jedi Users like Lobacca.

Silver represents calm users like Korren Horn.

White lightsabers are used by people using the light source such as Imperial Knights.

Finally, is the Black lightsaber or Darksaber as it has been called before. The black lightsaber is wielded by people stronger than the Sith lightsaber users. Darth Maul & Pre Visla have both had the Darksaber at some stage.

After understanding what each lightsaber represent, what colour do you think you would have and why? I personally think I would have either blue or green.

Stay tuned for more Star Wars updates in the near future. May the force be with you.
