What does your favourite colour mean in different cultures around the world?

A surprising new infographic from SilverDoor takes a look, revealing some interesting associations.

For instance, in the UK blue is often connected with sadness and masculinity; however, in China it brings to mind femininity, while in Thailand (where each day of the week has a colour), it represents Friday!

Similarly, red often means love, but in India the colour is more commonly associated with fear and power - whereas in China terms such as celebration, luck and happiness spring to mind.

However, there are some universal parallels; for example in most cultures, black represents death, bad luck, and magic.
