color by culture

18 09 2008

I found this chart that show the differences between cultures as far as the symbolism of different colors.  Its interesting how different one culture is from another.  For example the color green in the US means: growth, nature, environment, and so on.  But in china a green hat indicates a man’s wife is cheating on him or an exorcism. Very radical differences. Another example that sticks out in my head is that in India, it is traditional for a bride to where a red wedding dress, instead of white like in the US.

I find the Chinese reference quite funny. Instead of him resolving the issue of his cheating wife he wears a green hat and publicisies that he is having maritial problems.
