The Great Gatsby

Symbolism in The Great Gatsby

The Green Light Symbol 

The green light is a symbol of hope. It is located at Daisy's east egg dock and it can be seem from the west egg dock (Gatsby's place). 
It is a green light and not a red one. Green light means that it's ok to pass. It charges Gatsby with hope to continue his way in achieving his dream, or in achieving Daisy.
