I understand that virgins used to wear special clothing that showed they 
were virgins like in 2 Samuel 13:18 which says Tamar wore a special outfit 
as a as one of the king's virgin daughters.
Maybe non-royal people wore a different outfit that showed they were 

Maybe "betula" means "in red" although it is spelled differently than the 
word red in Hebrew. Maybe the word "bachur" young man could mean "in white".

If the idea seems silly, sorry. I am just guessing for fun.
