Today I read a very interesting story about color and I'm going to think about it.
"Green" symbolizes leaves, nature, safety and peace in Japan. When I see green color, I feel fresh and peaceful. Green leaves and green vegetables.
Now green color is available as the color of environmental conservation on a global basis. "Green Peace" is a good example.
But sometimes green color has a different image depending on the country, culture and religion. In Islamic states, green is regarded as a very sacred color because of Muhammad's green turban.
On the contrary, in English, green with envy means very jealous.
I remembered my friend. At that moment he was in the situation to choose one umbrella. Green one or beige one. He told me he didn't want to bring a green one because green is a female color. I was surprised to hear that. Green is not a female color in Japan, probably neutral.
Different point of view. I need to remember there exists a big difference everywhere.
