It sounds interesting, doen't it? but I feel about different colors is influenced by the culture. In my culture white color is purity, blue is hope, black is bad luck, green is vitality, red is victory, and yellow is betray.


As I know yellow can activate our brain. So it's a great idea of painting class yellow. It'll help children fresh their mind and study better. So, you should wear a yellow shirt if you have an important exam. 8)

Hi!!
it's a bit strange that in vietnam everyone wears white clothes in funeral. in indonesia, there's no rule for that. but, as far as i know, people usually wear simple dress with dark colors. it doesn't have to be black. we can use any color, but not the bright one.

my mother said that we only wear white clothes in funerals if we're still students. other cases we'd better wear dark colors. I haven't attended much funerals so I don't know whether it's popular or not. why do U think we have this distinction? :oops:

Yes, LennyeTran. But there is something strange in my country. In wedding, the bride often wears a long white dress because it is purity. But in funeral, everybody also wears white clothes. I have asked my teacher, she didn't answer my question. I answered her "why white color is purity while it is also bad luck?" :? I don't understand! :roll:


I hope when you find out the answer, you can share with us. :D

I would like to know the answer too.

yellow is the color of flawlessness and nobleness. Chinese imperors and royal people always wear yellow clothes, Gold is yellow and stars are always printed yellow too.



Well... I would like to add another one. Red has auspicious meaning in China and Taiwan. In traditional wedding, brides' dress is red. During Chinese New Year, people wear red clothes. Even at that time, some people wear red underwears and underpants when they gamble, play majiang, poker... etc.
