Colours often have different meanings in different cultures. In the U.S., people have found the following to be true.

Black

Black is the colour of power. It is also popular in fashion because it makes people appear thinner.

White

White is the symbol of purity. White is thought to be a summer colour. However, white shows dirt and is more difficult to keep clean than other colours.

Do you know why different animals or pests have their special colours? Colours in them seem to be mainly used to protect themselves .

      Some birds like eating locusts(蝗虫), but birds cannot easily catch them. Why ? It is because locusts change their colurs with the changes of the colours of crops .When crops are green , locusts look green .But as the harvest time comes , locusts change into the same brown colour as crops have .Some other pests whose colours are different from plants/ are easily found and eaten by others .So they have to hide themselves for lives and appear only at night .

     If you study the animals’ life , you’ll find the main use of colours is to protect themselves .Bears , lions and other animals move quietly through forests .They cannot be easily seen by hunters because their colours are much like the trees.

     Colours are useful not only on the land , but also in the sea .A kind of fish in the sea can give out a kind of black liquid(液体)when the fish face danger.
