Laundry Symbols

We encounter signs and symbols everyday, and while most are easy to recognize, some we have no clue what they might mean.  Have you ever looked at the tag in your clothing?  Aside from having information about the materials the garment is made from and where it was manufactured, there are also some basic washing instructions and sometimes assorted symbols, but what do they mean?  Today’s infographic is a chart of those symbols.  It can be a great addition to a lesson on symbolic language, deciphering code, or general household/life skills information. [VIA]

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.
