    Yellow, the color between orange and green on the spectrum of visible light, is a primary color in subtractive color systems. Yellow has labelled both heretics and those with honoured status. We’ve associated it with happiness, gentleness, humour, reason, harmony, as well as envy, sickness, and cowardice. It’s the colour of taxis, school buses, caution signs, bananas, buttercups, saffron, the third chakra, and our sun. Share your interpretation of YELLOW with words or images.
