I think maybe cause it is calm,I mean there is nothing to it right, it is pure, no color is added.

I agree. It is the color of purity and calm, and all things of light and right. So I think that may have a lot to do with the color choice.

The first mention of the usage of white flags to surrender is made during from the Eastern Han dynasty (A.D 25-220). In the Roman Empire, the historian Cornelius Tacitus mentions a white flag of surrender in A.D. 109. Before that time, Roman armies would surrender by holding their shields above their heads. The usage of the white flag has since spread worldwide. The Umayyad dynasty ruled for ninety years (661-750) over the Islamic world, using white as their symbolic color as a reminder of Muhammad's first battle at Badr, and to distinguish themselves from the Abbasids, by using white, rather than black, as their color of mourning. White is one of the pan-Arab colors because of that period.
