In English, we have many idioms, or expressions, using colors.

For example, if I am feeling blue, how am I a feeling?  I’m sad.   Blue is associated with sadness.  

Or I am the black sheep of my family.  That refers to the bad one in the family or group.

Or I told a white lie.  That’s “a nice lie”, to spare someone’s feelings.

Others color idioms include:

Gray area: Not clearly defined.
