"Why was the Titanic painted the way it was? Was there any symbolism behind it, was it a matter of practicality or did they just like the way it looked?"

according to a site called titanic paint and reference, the titanic’s paint was different colors and it was recommended the paint so there was no symbolism

Titanic’s sister ships the britannic and olympic. The olympic was a month ahead of the titanic on construction the two ships looked  identical exempt olympic’s A-deck promenade wasn’t enclosed like the titaninc’s after the titanic sunk bookings were well down in the summer of 1912 so White Star took her out for a renovation they added more life boats and trained crew to lower lifeboats the olympic nic-name old reliable it survived 4 U-boat atacks and also sunk a U-boat.

The britannic was the titanics third sister ship it launched February 26, 1914 it converted into hospital ship just like the titanic they considered the britannic unsinkable but this time it had a double layer on the outer skin the ship also had for huge lifeboat davits they could hold six lifeboats of the ship and the bulkheads went up another 5 decks so she could stay afloat with six compartments flooded instead of four compartments like the titanic but on November 21, 1914 a violent explosion tore the hull open some people say a mine hit it some say it was torpedoed anyway the watertight doors between comp. No.5 and No.6 failed to close, the captain ordered the ship to keep moving they tried to make it to the island of Kea, 7 miles away but this speeded up the sinking it sunk within 55 minutes there also might of been some portholes open against order.

(left) titanic’s 16 watertight bulkheads. (middle) the damaged compartments and where the water flowed to when 1 compartment breached (right) the iceberg colliding with the ship. it was thought for many years that the iceberg sliced the hole in the ship it was later discovered that the iceberg popped the rivets out of there place and the water flowed in.

life in third class was simple there cabins were very nice well atleast if you were a poor immigrant in 1912. there cabins were neatly furnished with hot and cold running water. the meals were palin but filling like boiled potatoes or peaches with rice. the third class ate in two sittings since their saloon only could hold 470 occupants at a time. yhe third class only had only a few places to go such as the general room, the smoking room , or the poop deck (the back deck of a ship) sice the band only played in the first and second class public rooms the their class played their own music.

life in first class was amazing evreything was so lavish,neat , and luxurious. the most fanciest suites were C-55-7 on c deck B-59 on B deck B-50 on B deck and C-62htey all included a dressing room, two bedrooms an office, a private promenade, and some had a private bathroom. so life in your suite was pretty nice. The dinners on the titanic were the most fantastic the women would dress up in there fanciest gowns and jewelry. The men would dress up in fancy suites. They would all meet on the forward grand staircase on      A-deck and when the time came they would either descend in the lifts or the stairway the meals were 9 course with a new glass of wine each corse with a fancy dessert at the end and after the meal the men would head for the smoking room to chat or to paly a hand of poker of black jack.

life in second class was still good there rooms weren’t as nice as the first class rooms but the smoking room still had a nice clubby feeling. the cabins, the cabins weren’t fancy but they were roomy even Ruth Becker said ” Just like a hotel room it was so big everything was new New!” they had a little couch and a little wash basin (they didn’t have running water though) they were made for 2 to 4 people. promenade the second class had two places to stroll the boat deck and the the enclosed promenade on C deck. second class had some public rooms but not as fancy they had a library smoking room they could go in some of the first class rooms before sailing and they were allowed to use the grand stairwell to get to thre rooms.
