A favorite resource: Colours In Cultures. Pink=Healthy, in Japan.

Not only is this fascinating for how different colors suggest different things in different cultures, but note, for example, how some cultures have additional considerations over others. Case in point: Japan and China have two colors, pink and orange, for suggesting Health (see number 40). There is no such color for Westerners. Hmm….

Notable too is the common ground between some color interpretations. There is, for example, wide consensus that red suggests Passion (number 62), black suggests Evil (number 24), and white suggests a Truce (number 79), but note that waving a white cloth amidst battle in Africa, South America, or Muslim environments may have no effect for communicating a cease-fire!
