The Color of Culture

June 14, 2010

If we can believe this chart, the only universal colors accepted by all cultures for a particular emotion are black (for evil) and red (for passion).┬áThe information design also leads one to believe (though I find it hard to imagine they intend this communication) that jealousy only exists in Western Europe, America, and Japan (or I suppose that there simply isn’t a color for it elsewhere; I suspect these gaps are just that, however: missing information).

In any event, a concise and interesting piece of information design, courtesy of Information is Beautiful.
