In this paper on the basis of the English and German journalistic texts the specific usage of the vocabulary denoting the green color that has the status of a certain symbol is established. The aim of this study is to clarify the similarities and differences in the use of lexical units that convey the symbolism of the green color in two closely related languages: English and German. To achieve this goal the following tasks were solved: to determine the semantics of words, representing green color in English and German journalistic texts compared to their dictionary meanings; to set the frequency of using data of lexical units in the texts; to compare and find out the specifics of symbolic representation of green color through certain lexemes in the texts of this kind in the languages being compared.

Keywords: symbolism, color naming, green color, journalistic text, vocabulary, comparison.
