A World of Color
No matter where you go, colors are everywhere! And while the colors may be the same, their meanings change depending on the country.
Green means “hope” in Ecuador. In the U.S., it’s a symbol of money and concern for the environment.
Purple is worn by kings and queens in Europe, while in Thailand, it’s worn by women whose husbands have died.
Black is the traditional color of mourning(哀悼) in the West. But on the Pacific islands of Melanesia, it’s a symbol of beauty and speed.
White is considered a pure color and is worn at weddings in America. In parts of Asia, however, white is worn to funerals(葬礼) as a sign of winter, when everything is dead.
Red means “beautiful” in Russia, but in South Africa, it’s the color of mourning. In the United States, a bride would be criticized(批评) for wearing a red gown. In India or China, though, brides often wear red as a symbol of good fortune.
