Hanuman is considered as a symbol of power, energy, faithfulness, wisdom, and many more qualities.

Association of Sindoori color with Lord Hanuman

The reason behind reddish orange colour of the idols of Bajrangbali is that when he was born in Vanara community, he was of reddish orange colour. Another reason that lies in a story is taken from Ramayana. Hanuman was sitting near Sita who was applying Sindoor on her forehead. Hanuman asked her the reason of applying it. She told him that it will prolong the life of Lord Rama. Listening to that, Bajrangbali coated his whole body with Sindoor to lengthen the life of his master.
