Yellow Around The World

Today we will travel around the world through the color yellow.

Yellow is commonly associated with gold, wealth, sunshine, reason, happiness, optimism and pleasure, but also with envy, jealousy and betrayal. It plays an important role in Asian culture, particularly in China.[source]

I found that yellow is not found as much as blue or even orange, but it is definitely present. I mean, how can we ignore the bright yellow star in the sky called the Sun, that keeps us alive? Personally, yellow is not a favorite color mostly because it doesn’t look good on me; but outdoors, it can boost my mood. This color seems to work real well for McDonald’s too.
