Culture and Colors – Infographic

What Colors Mean to Different Cultures

Every culture expresses themselves differently, whether it be through words, signs, gestures, or symbols.  This is no different when it comes to color.  For example, in the US (and most western cultures) we associate the color red with danger, but for the Native Americans it’s yellow.  We get the blues when we’re unhappy, but the Japanese see black.  Today’s data packed infographic gives a fantastic insight into the ways that different cultures perceive their emotions through color.
