The green advent candle represents the shepherds. Usually, two types of advent wreaths are done. One is with the three purple candles and one pink candle with a white candle in the center. The other one has one gold, white, green, and red or purple candle. The gold represents prophecy. The white represents angles. The green represents shepherds and the red represents the wise men. There's a white candle in the center which represents Jesus.

Actually, though the purple and pink candles are more common, there is a tradition that celebrates the advent season with gold, green, white, purple, and red candles. I'm not sure where this variation of the advent wreath originated, but I have seen it practiced in Baptist churches. In sequence the gold candle is for the prophets, the while candle is for the angels, the green candle is for the shepherds, the purple (sometimes a blue candle may be used) candle is for the magi, and the red candle is for the Savior.

The first purple candle means: waitingThe second purple candle means: hopeThe third purple candle means: joyThe pink candle means: peace.Catholic AnswerThe candles, and the Advent wreath itself, are NOT part of the liturgy officially, and are a common folk custom from northern Europe. The four candles were put on the wreath to signify the four Sundays of Advent. Three violet candles and one rose candle - for the color of the four Advent Sundays (purple and pink are NOT liturgical colors in the Catholic Church). The candles themselves have no meaning outside of what some have given them, they are not officially part of the church's liturgy and thus have no official meaning. Some people put a white candle in the middle to stand for Christmas, but this is wildly inappropriate as, thought not official, it is an ADVENT wreath, and Advent ends on the afternoon of Christmas eve.

The white candle in the center of the wreath is the 5th candle - that is lit on Christmas or Christmas eve at Mass.Roman Catholic AnswerTechnically the Advent wreath doesn't have a fifth candle. A fifth candle is making into something other than an Advent wreath. Advent has four weeks, and there is a candle for each week. The Advent wreath should be taken down before the Christmas midnight Mass begins. I think the "fifth candle" is some modern invention that makes no sense.
