In the 4th century the Greek philosopher, Aristotle, identified the heart as being the most important organ of the body and the first to develop. He explained it was a hot dry organ that was the center of vitality in the body. All the other organs were only in existence to cool the heart. In the 12th century, Master Nicolaus described the heart as being the seat of all emotions and feelings. "If indeed from the heart alone rise anger or passion, fear, terror, and sadness; if from it alone spring shame, delight, and joy, why should I say more?" wrote Andreas de Laguna in 1535.
Poets and writers eulogized over the hearts connection to love, and so in time the heart came to symbolize love. The very origination of the heart shape has dimmed through the centuries and we only have left over artifacts to muse over its first appearance; however, what we do know is that it has become the symbol of love. As to the red color, it depicts the color of blood, passion and strong emotion.
