In the west, yellow is not a well-loved color; in a 2000 survey, only six percent of respondents in Europe and America named it as their favorite color. compared with 45 percent for blue, 15 percent for green, 12 percent for red, and 10 percent for black. For seven percent of respondents, it was their least favorite color. Yellow is the color of ambivalence and contradiction, the color associated with optimism and amusement but also with betrayal and duplicity. But in China and other parts of Asia, yellow is a color of virtue and nobility.

Asia is wiser then the West ! Do you know, if you have type B blood, your ancestors came from Mongolia/China region ?! o.O

“Yellow has strong historical and cultural associations in China, where it is the color of happiness, glory, and wisdom. In China, there are five directions of the compass; north, south, east, west, and the middle, each with a symbolic color. Yellow signifies the middle. China is called the Middle Kingdom; the palace of the Emperor was considered to be in the exact center of the world. The name of the legendary first Emperor of China, Huang Ti, meant literally “the Yellow Emperor.” The last emperor of China, Puyi (1906-1967), described in his memoirs how every object which surrounded him as a child was yellow. “It made me understand from my most tender age that I was of a unique essence, and it instilled in me the consciousness of my “celestial nature” which made me different from every other human.” The Chinese Emperor was literally considered the child of heaven, with both a political and religious role, both symbolized by yellow. Only members of the Imperial household were permitted to wear yellow. Distinguished visitors were honored with a yellow, not a red, carpet. In Chinese symbolismyellow, red and green are masculine colors, while black and white are considered feminine. In the traditional symbolism of the two opposites which complement each other, the yin and yangthe masculine yang is traditionally represented by yellow. Just as there are five elements, five directions and five colors in the Chinese world-view,there are also five seasons; summer, winter, fall, spring, and the end of summer, symbolized by yellow leaves.

Yellow is the most visible color from a distance, so it is often used for objects that need to be seen, such as fire engines, road maintenance equipment, school buses and taxicabs. It is also often used for warning signs, since yellow traditionally signals caution, rather than danger. Ayellow light on a traffic signal means slow down, but not stop; a yellow penalty card in a soccer match means warning, but not expulsion.”

I’m speechless ! Slow down, but not stop … hmmmmmmm … (o-O)
